Project Description

Your Pet on a Pack of Postcards

We're going to convert a photo or drawing of your favorite animal (maybe your own pet or somebody else's) into a design that's ready for carving into a block of latex.

Then we'll start carving the block, do a few proofs until we're happy with the results and after that, you can print to your heart's content (or until you run out of paper and ink).

So watch the videos and be sure to post your prep image in the project gallery.

A completed project will consist of:

  1. Your inspiration
  2. One or more project proofs
  3. Your final print

Look for the supply list, below, in the attachments area.

I'm looking forward to seeing your work!
