Print: Dutch Gilt Relief Print on a stencilled background
Dutch Gilt Relief printing is where a lino plate has metal leaf applied to its surface which is brought into contact with treated, sized paper. When pressure is applied, the non-recessed surface will leave leaf on the paper, whereas the recessed areas will not. When perfectly dry, the excess leaf is carefully removed revealing the pattern.
Four colours have been applied in a geometric pattern we call "Harlequin"
