white line linocut print on Rives BFK
image size: 5X7 inches
paper size 6.5x8 inches
I really consider these white line prints to be more like a watercolor painting. every one takes hours to paint and no two will ever be the same.
I used linoleum for this print. watercolor definitely wont work on linoleum (i tried that first just to see) but the water soluble crayons worked great!
I used water soluble crayons (they are very easy to blend with your finger tips) then spray misted the block and paper and printed using a my small etching press. I like the press because it gives a nice even print and the white lines are nicely embossed.
