Plan and design a positive and negative portrait that has dramatic lighting (6.2, 6.4,7.1)
Carve design and create three prints for a portfolio (6.6, 7.1, 7.2, 7.3)
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.
"Print, what?!?
>>> Printmaking is the process of transferring an inked design onto a surface
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.
From Caves to Machines
Each table will be assigned one question. Use the reading to find the answer and be prepared to share!
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 positive and negative design

> Transfer design to plate using tracing paper and graphite pencil
Step Two - Carve
> Carve away the negative shapes and do not touch the positive 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
