Relief Printing
Monotype A type of art that uses an inked block or plate to print an image. This allows multiple printings, unlike drawing or painting. RELIEF PRINTING is started by carving a flat surface, removing areas that you do not want to print. Ink is applied to the raised surface to create a print Hokusia's Great Wave 1823-29 Kathe Kollwitz, Self Portrait, 1923 INTAGLIO PRINTING is when an artist etches an image into a plate, usually metal, to be printed. The design is scratched into the surface and the scratches hold the ink. Ink is held beneath the surface. LITHOGRAPHY uses a stone or metal plate with a completely smooth surface. In this printing process, offset lithography,
The image to be printed is rendered or etched onto a flat surface, (the plane) such as a sheet of aluminum, plastic, or zinc. Next the image is transferred to a rubber roller, and then finally to the substrate. SCREENPRINTING is when the ink is transferred through a screen. An image is either burned on the screen or passed through a stencil on the screen. Shawn Hileman COLLAGRAPHY printmaking is created by using found objects arranged in a collage format. Ink is applied to that surface then printed onto paper. Mary Krieger 2008 A MONOTYPE print is created by made by drawing or painting on a smooth, non-absorbent surface. The image is then transferred onto a sheet of paper by pressing the two together, usually using a printing-press. Monotyping produces a unique print, or monotype; most of the ink is removed during the initial pressing. Although subsequent reprintings are sometimes possible.

Things to Consider:
-negative (carved lines)= color of paper
-words: spell backwards, letters reversed
-ALWAYS non-carving hand behind carving hand
-carve AWAY from your body
-keep face away!
-keep space around you Tools and Materials Gouge




Benchhook From Sketch to finished product. Roll ink on block and print by placing paper on top of block. Use baren to press down on paper. Choose ink colors and roll evenly onto plexiglass. Ink should start to make a sort of velcro sound. Choose which areas to carve and use gouge to carve out negative areas. Remember, the area carved will be the color of the paper. Start with a block, ebony pencil, and piece of paper. Trace block onto paper. Draw design in the traced box. Remember to draw words backwards. Flip drawing over, and use ebony pencil and scribble dark lines on back of paper. Flip back to drawing and line up the block under your drawing. Trace over drawing pressing hard. Set drawing aside and darken lines on block
