This past weekend I dug into my art supplies and rediscovered a linocut printing set that I had purchased. Feeling adventurous, I dug in (pun intended?) and crafted the block below:
The steps were simply as follows:
- Choose your design
- Draw it in reverse on the block
- Remove access material using the cutting tool (cutting yourself minimally, ouch!)
- Ink and press
For those that have tried linocut printmaking, show me your stuff! I’d love to see it!
