Cuss Like Sailors, Hug Like Angels - Lino Print
For the full story of this friendship themed lino print, here's the whole story including Work In Progress pics as a blog post :)
(By the way, in real life the green background is not fluoro, not sure why that's happening with the screen version :P )
This is a small series totalling 10 prints only, though not technically a limited edition. If you love owning and/or gifting bold art pieces that just 9 other people on the entire planet will have, this is for you.
I make limited edition lino prints by first carving a design into a piece of linoleum, then rolling the lino with ink, and then pressing this onto paper.
Once I’ve created the lines, I do all my colouring with Winsor and Newton Artists’ Watercolours. When creating my original art, I use Archival quality watercolour paper, usually 100% cotton Arches paper from France.
The dimensions of this image are about 30.5cm x 23.5cm (approx 12" x 9"), and there is ample paper around that for mounting and framing. Good framing adds around 10 - 12cm (5") on all sides, more at the bottom.
These are shipped nude (ie. unframed) - this saves us both money on postage, and you can support your local framing artisan. Unsure about framing? Get my new art collectors guide to framing "How to I Frame my Lino Print?"
