My original idea was to try one of my screenprint designs and see how it worked as a linoprint. I chose this one
I spent hours carving the lino - very hard on the wrists, and applying three different colours as is required for a reduction linoprint. Blue (background), green (foliage and flowers) and black (nuts and branches) - more carving in between each colour application. The block print inks are very sticky and so it seemed to get everywhere and even though water soluble it was quite hard to wash off. And I thought screen printing inks were messy!
My next post will be showing some of some block print fabric designers I admire.
