11  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Blockplates: rainclouds & octopus on: April 16, 2011 11:36:41 AM
I've been making some block printed bookplates (on Japanese kozo, or mulberry paper), which I thought I'd share:




Cheers!

scuttlebutt thanks very much! The owl is actually brown, but it could also be printed in a lighter shade I think.

Thanks bernyispurestyle! I think it took me a few hours: sketching, carving, printing proofs and carving some more.

Thanks very much wendiek, Muddlepud and Sirk!  Cheesy

14  IMAGE REPRODUCTION TECHNIQUES / Other Image Reproduction Techniques: Completed Projects / Screech-owl and block on: February 08, 2011 11:01:10 AM


This is my latest linocut and block. It's a Western Screech-Owl (more or less life sized ~8.5 inches or 22 cm tall).

I carved Mr. Otus Kennicottii (the screech-owl) in linoleum and printed him in water-based block printing ink, on Japanese kozo (or mulberry) paper, in an edition of six prints. Each print is 6 and a quarter by 12 and a half inches (15.9 cm by 31.8 cm).

I use the soft artists' lino (sometimes called softoleum).

That's a great idea! The designs are excellent too.

Screenprint (also known as silkscreening) seems the obvious choice. There are a number of tutorials on craftster. If you use the photographic method you don't have to worry about reproducing fonts with a precise stencil.

Good luck!

Hi there,

Let's see if I can help.
First, I think I need a little more information:
-what sort of ink are you using?
-what sort of paper are you using?
-how are you printing them (i.e. with a press? with a wooden spoon? with a baren?)

From the photo it looks like - maybe- your ink is a wee bit too thick and possibly uneven (which works really well with your tree! but I can see it might not suit all purposes). You could try pulling a few proofs before you print the cards so you get a really nice texture. Also, it looks like you might be using a very heavy weight paper (cardstock?). Unless you have an actual press, it will be very hard to get a nice print with such paper. Investing in some thin, but strong paper, like Japanese kozo paper (my personal favorite) might make this easier.

Good luck,
minouette

I think this is my first post in this section. Generally, you can find me in the 'image reproduction - other' category because I make lino block prints. But this time I make prints on fabric to make the Owl and the Pussycat (and then had fun photographing them with a knit throw 'sea' and paper sky backdrop):



These are the plush animals themselves (the owl is about 8 inches or 22 cm tall):


 and the backing print fabric - which inspired the whole thing:
