I am teaching a relief printmaking class at the Phoenix Center for the Arts. In preparation, I ordered some relief supplies from Dick Blick that I had never used before. One was a new item - a clear soft plastic like plate about 1/8" thick in a 12 x 12 size. I taped a drawing under it and cut it for a black and white print. It was weird, really hard to see what was left as I cut it away. But I kept plugging away and ended up with the plate and print shown in the photos. I used Flexcut tools and it cut more easily than linoleum. But I think I still prefer Gomuban (available from imcclains.com).
COME PRINT WITH US!
Tomorrow is week 2 of 5 and then we start all over again with another 5 week session. If anyone is interested sign up is available now for this relief class and solarplate etching too starting the middle of February. Here's a link to registration.
