Making Prints in The Woodlands

Still making prints over here.  This is a linoleum block.  They’re quite easy to carve; a LOT easier to carve than wood!  Also with wood you can pull maybe only 100 prints before the wood swells and shrinks too much.  These lino blocks can go a long time if you’re careful.

If you want to start easy with print making, you can actually do it on a styrofoam meat tray from the grocery store with a pencil and some acrylic paint.  That’s super basic but a good way to get a feel for the process.  I always use printer’s ink because it’s the perfect viscosity for all the details.  There are SO many ways to print and I love them ALL!
