8x10 Prickly Pear relief print
Please note: I'm switching over to using oil-based ink for the blacks in my relief prints- which results in a better image, but also takes a little longer to dry! *Unless noted, please allow 3 weeks for your order to get to you. I try to keep you updated during the process so you don't think I forgot about you.
Printed on heavyweight, acid-free printmaking paper
8x10 - easy to slip in a frame, fun to hang as a set!
Each print is hand-pressed, making them all slightly different, that's the fun of relief printing!
What is relief printing?
I use a soft, rubbery block to carve the relief of the design I want to print. What's carved away becomes the negative space, where ink is not going to make an impression on paper. For now I do not have a press, I use body weight and a baren to press the design onto the paper.
