About This Class

f5a3491d

In this class we'll be going through my printing process, from idea generation to carving the block and inking it up for printing. I'll be throwing in some of the tips and tricks I have picked up through my own trial and error.

Reduction lino is a form of relief printing that uses one linoleum block to make several different layers, one after the other, destroying the previous layer as you make the next one.

By the end of this project you should have a solid foundation of printing knowledge in order to experiment and create your own lino prints for greetings cards, postcards and original prints.

MATERIAL YOU'LL NEED :

  • A rubber roller
  • Paper/card
  • A fat spoon ( baren )
  • Relief Printing ink (or if you have not access to this use paint that's quite tacky)
  • Wash proof marker pen
  • Lino carving tools ( found cheaply on Amazon, Ebay and in most arts shops)
  • Linoleum block ( comes in battleship grey with fabric backing or as a sheet of rubber called soft cut in various colours. Both types available on Amazon, Ebay and most art shops)

I loved your class, I learned so much. I just purchased everything I need to start my own lino cutting. If I'm brave enough to show you my results, I will.
Such a wonderful inspiring class!! Thank you!
