Heart to Heart Relief Prints
Hand Carved, Hand Pulled, Hand Touched.
Applied to wood panel with an acrylic "encaustic" coating
One of a kind.

Size: 16” x 16” x 2"

Currently I am making my prints with Speedball Speedy Cut Carving Blocks, which are high density rubber blocks. I really enjoy creating the design, transferring the image to the block and carving it. It is very relaxing. My favorite moment is after pressing the inked block to paper, peeling up the paper to reveal the print for the very first time. Even though I know what the design will look like, I can never expect what the final print will look like exactly. Then I go back into each print and enhance it by “painting” on more ink, ( I can’t help myself, I’m a primarily a painter. A painter-making-relief- prints. ) and manipulate it to a finished piece. It takes a lot more time, but makes each print unique. So, knowing this, realize that although the prints will look like the photo above, there may be some slight variations.

Once I have the print how I like it, I then adhere it to a custom made wood panel. Then I create a solution of acrylic "encaustic" coating to be poured on top of the print to create an encaustic feel and look. The print becomes sealed and protected to the wood panel substrate. It must sit and rest for a couple of days before it is cured. Each one is hand made and one of a kind.

Because of the labor involved with this "encaustic" process, these are the only ones I am making available for purchase. They are interesting in that they have the look and feel of encaustic but without the fragility of wax encaustic. There is an ever so slight visible iridescence in the encaustic coating and a slight texture, with no need to buff and polish as you do with wax encaustic. And you don't have to frame, they are ready to hang.
