I’ve added a bit of color to my previously posted hand printed linocut ceramic tiles.  Topped them off with a protective finish that really helps the colors pop off the tile.  So, here is a couple of quick pictures I took of a couple of them with the phone.

As always comments are welcome.  Don’t forget to check out the store for a limited selection of original pieces.

Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum (sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for the relief surface. A design is cut into the linoleum surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The linoleum sheet is inked with a roller (called a brayer), and then impressed onto paper or fabric. The actual printing can be done by hand or with a press.

 

Over the weekend, I started working on a few hand printed linocut prints on tile.  A bit more paint and a nice layer of polyurethane will finish these up.

I’ll have these at FanDays on October 8th and 9th in Irving.
