After some experiments with relief printmaking, I decided I wanted to go deeper into this media. So I have some new acquisitions:
Two blocks of printmaking paper from Strathmore (one from the 300 series and the other from the 400 series, which a little bit better supposedly), Schmincke College set of inks for relief printmaking, Calligo Safe Wash black ink (so I can start to add watercolor to my prints) and finally some more lino to cut!
My kitchen turns into a printmaking studio once in a while:
A close up of some of the final prints:
I achieved the background with "pastel marbling", a technique I found on the Hajra Meeks channel. It's a little tricky to do it, but the effect is worth it.
And another print:
I'm quite happy this one, I like how the water reflections came out, although there are some spots where the ink didn't grab the paper properly.
