|This was a carving in linoleum using the reduction technique.|
While my 7th graders were making their plate, I carved one too.
First step was to carve out the white areas and print with the yellow color.
Next I carved out the yellow areas and printed again with light green , this only showed up the yellow color.
Finally I carved the green areas out and printed with the dark violet.
If I were to do this again , I would have the dark color outlining the skull.
|This is the printing board I made so we could line up the pages each time. The process is call registration. At the top is a 3 hole punch to line up the paper each time. The plate is laid in the corner each time and the paper if put on top into the holes.|
I made two for my class and forgot to label one A and B because they were not exactly the same.
I used mat board scraps and had to glue with epoxy on the plexiglass.
Picasso liked to carve in linoleum as he did with these three.
