Another linocut for IMPACT 12


Hot off my little craft press: a proof of the second of two linocuts heading for IMPACT 12, the International Printmaking Conference in Bristol, UK, as part of a Goldfields Printmakers portfolio. 

The Poppy Crafts A4 die cutting and embossing machine doubles as an excellent press for smaller sized relief prints. (The work pictured here measures 20 x 15 cm). This craft press has the added benefit of adjustable pressure and is a pleasure to use, giving none of the grief I’ve experienced with printing linocuts on an etching press. 

Further updates on this and its sister work will be posted shortly.
