Title: First try at block printing
Post by: lglass on May 03, 2008 11:30:02 PM
I've been really impressed with the stamps and prints i've seen on here, so since it's finals time, I am crafting away instead of studying.  Here's a couple that I carved from those easy cut soft blocks:


this one is my favorite.  It's of a little town in Switzerland that I went to on a study abroad a few years ago.  I made copies for the other girls I went there with too. it's a 4x6"


this guy is pretty small.  just about 3 inches


this one is 4x4"

Tentacles!!!

*ahem*

The first one is amazing, I love the second one, and the third one...well, who doesn't love tentacles? ;D

I bow to your skills and your patience. :)

your favourite is my favourite, too! :D  really, i love the first one. it's so simply cut, yet so amazingly realistic in a way

i love the bunny and the tentacles as well

i did linoleum blocks a few times in school, i wish i had access to a press to do some of these now. :)

These are gorgeous!  I love the rabbit - it's face is striking.  It would look great in a tiny, ornate frame.

Those are so amazing. I tried something like that at an art class, and even though I did a simple line drawing, it looked messy and bad. Yours are beautiful.

Great start! I especially like the octopus! The Swiss town is lovely.

You are very talented, especially if this is a first try. I can only hope my practice gets me somewhere close to this good! ;)
