Demo: Inking the Block - Painting With my Brayer
As I continue to grow and learn about Lino Relief Printing, I'm always looking for new techniques to add to my tool box. Being a painter first, then print maker, it's only natural that I borrow methods from each and combine these methods to achieve my artistic goals.
In this demo, I solve the problem of creating contrast and dimension in my Lino Print by laying down variations in ink color directly to the block. Painting with my brayers as well as using a paint brush while in the inking process was the answer. I love the results achieved
with this easy process!
