Print: Relief Printed and hand stencilled.

Relief printing is where a printing block or plate has ink applied to its non-recessed surface 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, three stencils were made to apply three colours over the original black lino print.
