causes the water in the paint to be absorbed by the
salt. This creates designs and textures in the paint
when it dries.

Printmaking
started in
China
and
Japan
around the year 100 and was used as a form of
communication
because of the fact that
multiple prints
could be made out of one
plate.

also printed by putting
ink

directly on the fish. This way,
The fisherman could have proof that he caught a fish and still be able to eat it.
