Made By J&J Jeffery
This print is made from one hand cut lino block, printed in black ink and each of the many colours added by hand.
Please note that the main "in situ" photograph of this print shows the print without its border.
Print: Relief Printed and hand stencilled.
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.
