I thought I'd share one of my most recent prints. Here is my bumblebee.



Linoblock print on japanese kozo (mulberry) paper with yellow washi chine coll (that just means I've collaged the yellow details by also printing the block on fine, yellow, Japanese paper). The bumblebee fits within 10 cm squared (about 4") and the paper is 20 cm squared.

You can see how I built up the colour by adding paper. Here is the block printed just on the white paper:

I like this!  I love how much detail you put into your bee.  My fingers are always in a lot of pain after carving lino :p

Wow, I've learned so much about block printing in the last three minutes! I never new you could re-cut a block with each impression (as in your owl print, and now I can say chine coll! All three you've posted today are great -- I hope you do more!

Thanks very much everyone!

ally-oops there are two tricks you could use:
1. you can heat lino to make it softer and easier to carve. A simple hot plate works well!
2. I prefer to get the really soft artist's lino or 'softoleum' ... it carves like a charm

Will do, Wulf! Glad you enjoyed all my posts.
