Multi Blue Agave on 18x24 paper
Until I can get a couple of screens made of my agave relief print to screen print this image, I'm offering hand pressed block printed images- each agave is a 2-color print and done separately. I used water-based ink to print on a thick, acid-free, watercolor paper that's 18" wide and 24 inches long. It's a good standard size so you can easily pick up a frame to put it in.
Big, beautiful, perfect plants... I drew out an image of a blue agave to carve and make into a two color print. I love the look of a repeat pattern, so I fit 6 on this large paper!
*A relief print is made using a carved block that was created by carving out the negative space, leaving the positive space to pick up ink to transfer to a surface. A screen print is made by pulling ink through a stretched screen that has the negative space blocked out so that the ink can flow through the open mesh where the design is!
