Once I am sure of my design I transfer it with tracing paper onto easycut lino. I then cut away the lines and spaces that I don’t want to pick up ink with a set of very sharp tools. It is a long process but incredibly enjoyable!
Once finished, I ink up the lino and place the paper on top - rubbing the back with a roller. I then peel off the paper to reveal the design - which is a joy and always surprising.
Because they are all hand printed there will be variations in the texture and depth of the print, making each one unique.
Here are some pictures of the first drawings with their future selves in lino.
