lino printing

No “Jack” painting tonight, too knackered to stand up, so slumped at the table instead :)

I’ve wanted to do a bit of lino printing for a while, so I’ve drawn this little design to get the ball rolling. I’m going to try something called “suicide” printing, where you keep cutting into the same block, print a colour and cut again…I’ve never done this before…and it seems like I’d better not make a mistake ;)

Anyway, I think I’ll try and make some cards from these if they work…another experiment :)

This looks promising....I am drawn to the idea of suicide printing.....maybe I am moving over to the dark side...;-)

Looking forward to learning more.
