lino cutting without the lino

It's that time of year folks - snowy scenes, snuggling inside and seasons greetings.

So, to help the Christmas preparations along, we combined the start of a printing process with festive images.

The results follow and a brief "How to do it" is at the end of this page.

Well done everyone - lovely work and we all survived without bandages!

 The Task

materials & equipment:  paper, pencil, mount-board, oil pastels or children's wax crayons, craft knife

  • on paper make a pencil drawing of image  [The simpler the better.  This is the time to adjust image.]
  • draw onto mount-board
  • using craft knife and without going all the way through the board, cut around outline 
  • peal away top surface of board in the areas not part of the drawing (rubbing of my demo piece in image 1)
  • take a rubbing to determine next stage 
  • Continue removing other areas and taking rubbings until your satisfied with the result.
  • Once happy with image, experiment with colour

Tips
Use wrapping paper & Christmas cards to give you ideas for images.
If making Christmas cards, the size of the piece should be determined by the envelope you intend to use.

Enjoy!







Happy Christmas to all visitors to circles of light-fylde blogspot
