Sharpening up…

First, a drawing, which is traced then transferred (using a very hard pencil, draw over the lines to press carbon paper marks) in reverse onto a piece of lino.


Cut the lightest areas first…


Ink it up


Print, then hang up to dry



Cut away the areas to be mid-coloured…


Ink up the block, place the print in exactly the right position and press…


Wonder why you waste so much effort on this nonsense. Realise that print looked better before the second layer of ink was added. 


Some of them might be OK, with a bit of editing.
