Lino Printing

I've done lino printing before back in school so I was confident enough to try a bit of colour separation - exciting.. It took me hours to carve both pieces of lino as some of the detail was quite intricate, and I also had to sacrifice several of my knuckles. They came out really well though, I love the vibrancy of the inks.

It was a very slow process. Inking then clamping then cleaning then inking...

Because I had two lino cuts that needed to be registered almost perfectly I had to make myself a jig to use when putting my prints in the clamp.
