GIVING WOODCUT A GO


Hi there,

Well I have attempted my first woodcut and my first reduction print. I used an image from a drawing I did a year or so ago. I enjoyed the process, although I would do a couple of things differently next time. I would take my blanket out and run the print through with just a piece of matt board on top and I may use different wood for my block - something a bit thicker. Here are some photos I took during the process.

  1. RPS I don't know how you beat the template for distribution of the images, but I think it looks great.

  2. Well done it looks great. What wood did you use and why wouldn't you use it again?

  3. Nice one RPS - Be careful, you might knock JGN of her perch as chief explorer of different printmaking techniques. JM
