2. Image is glued
to the wood.

1. Come up with
a design. They could be one color or polychromatic.
Rubber/Linoleum Print Process
What's the difference?
Woodblock vs. Rubber
If a print was to have
multiple colors, a new
block would be made for each color in this same manner.
Sometimes as many as 20 blocks would be made for one image.
4. Next, the ink is rolled evenly onto the block.
5. The paper is then marked evenly so the edges are even and placed on the block.
6. The paper is rubbed until the ink soaks in, then gently taken off the block
3. Use one of the cutting tools to cut away the design. Raised areas will have ink.
5. Roll the brayer in the ink and evenly cover. Roll the inked brayer over the rubber and evenly cover.
4. Mark the paper so that sides are even when printed on.
6. Place paper on top of the printing plate without bending it. It will skew the image if you do.
