Made By J&J Jeffery
This extraordinary print is made from a hand cut lino block, repeat printed, in black ink and each of the many colours added by hand on white cotton rag paper.
Relief printing is where a printing block or plate has ink applied to its non-recessed surface which is brought into contact with paper. When pressure is applied, the non-recessed surface will leave ink on the paper, whereas the recessed areas will not.
Stencilling- A stencil is made by cutting out the required shapes in a heavy oiled cardstock to match the area where added colour is desired. An translucent ink is dabbed over the hole in the stencil leaving the colour making a multiple coloured, highly decorative print.
In this instance, multiple stencils were made to apply the extra colours to the main black print colour.
