LINO CUTTING

I was down in Suffolk over the weekend and while there my friend and I took a lino cutting workshop. It was great fun and so I thought I would share some of the pics with you.

Here are my prints hanging up to dry!









These are my two favourite lino blocks.

And these are different colour versions of the blocks printed. We used proper printers ink to make the prints which I don't have at home so I am going to have to experimnent with various pigment inks and see what results I get!

I did lino cutting recently and its great fun. You can get a medium that you mix with oil paints to make a basic printers ink if you want to get similar results at home. I got Daler Rowney ~ Georgian ~ Block Print Medium
