Printmaking Linoleum

The Process
Our Project
A positive shape is the main object. A negative shape is the area surrounding the object.
An image that is transferred through the use of pressure.
The tool used to roll the ink out, and then used to roll the onto your design.
The tool used to press your inked plate to your paper.
The surface that is used to create the design.
A practice print that is properly labeled.
A final print that is labeled #/total made
Carved lines that are kept to create texture, detail, and value.
Step One - Design
> Create a design that considers use of positive & negative space to create values

> Transfer design to plate using graphite pencil
Step Two - Carve
> Carve away the white shapes and do not touch the black shapes

> Use your cutter to create intentional hatching lines
Step Three - Ink
> Roll the ink onto the plate, keeping only the positive shapes inked

> Check for smooth and consistent ink
Step Four - Print
> Place paper on top of inked plate and use a baren to transfer the ink onto you paper

> Carefully peel the paper away to reveal your print
