Christmas Card

Every year I make a Lino cut Christmas card and this year is no exception.  I thought I would show you the steps involved in the Lino cut print process.


First Step was to do a sketch of the idea.  I had done a peacock hooking a few months ago and so this image is something already in my head.


This is the Lino which was carved by the tools seen here.  I drew it on the Lino first and then carved  out the areas which were to stay white.

The red handled roller has picked up the black ink and you can see the two prints on the left and the Lino on the right.

Watercolour now used to paint the bits that needed the colour.

Here is a bunch ready to go.
