Printmaking. Relief printing.
Printmaking is one of my favorite things, but I know that the different kinds of print can be confusing to the beginner.
Here, I'm going to talk about what is probably the most familiar kind of print - the Lino Print.
Lino printing, like wood cuts are examples of what is termed 'Relief Printing'. Basically, the block of lino or wood is cut into, and the print is taken from the remaining raised areas, which receive and transfer the ink.
