Birds and Flowers
Flowers and birds in charcoal

Print: Squashed paste print
A very old technique whereby a pigmented paste (usually made from wheat flour) is painted onto the sheet of paper, that sheet laid onto a carved printing plate. Pressure is applied by hand or via a printing press, the ink is squeezed away from the pattern leaving a two tone print. It creates a softer image, not a "hi res" print as you would expect from a traditional process such as letterpress.
