|the reason i havent cut away the line but instead cut Around the lin is because it prints in reverse,|
|I worked more into it.|
i think this image is quite funny which is one reason i did it
so i wanted to add a little more impact to the nature of the image
|once i inked the lino with the roller i placed the paper and dragged a ruler accross it|
this almost embossed the paper at the same time
|the first print!!|
i love the first print! i was delighted to see it worked! it actually worked!
|few issues with ink on unwanted parts. i left it to retain more quality of the process|
|i tried printing by just using the pressure of my hand.|
it did yeild a slightly different effect. ..
|tried out different papers|
I found thicker paper better just because it felt more solid and therefor valuable
|this is calligraphy ink.very watery.|
|i though the first print was shite, but rest had a really cool quality.|
|acrylic ink just ruined everything|
total waste of time and ink
|towards the end i had quite a simple, but good, effective set up|
I used a large cutting mat to roll and apply ink, and the smaller one. kept clean to print
|block printing ink. bit weird stuff.|
the best ink by far was the oil based ink.
was a right messy bastid but gave excellent prints.
|using old canvases as a kind of makeshift drying rack.|
One thing ive enjoyed particuly is making do and finding new uses for things.
