Making a 5 Colour Linocut Print. Halcyon
Click on the above picture as it's actually a slideshow. ^
I'm currently engaged in making another linocut limited edition print (of 25). I wanted to make the description of the kingfisher a little simpler as I have only 5 flat colours to work with. Also, I had to make a jig to make registering the plates more accurate and not have the colours printing in the wrong place.
I chose to print on a fine grain watercolour paper instead of a smooth one as I want to see texture rather than a purely flat colour. This introduces yet another variable to the process which makes each print unique.
3 of these are already sold.
The image is roughly A5 on an A3 sheet of Fabriano fine grain 140lb watercolour paper. Signed and embossed with my studio stamp.
