ALPS: Sea Shells No.78

Regular price $99.00

Pink sea shells

Suitable for bookbinding, box covering and lining, picture framing, furniture and the general paper crafts.

Print: Lino relief printed and hand coloured.

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. 

Added Colour - A stencil is made by cutting out the required shapes in an 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, two stencils were made to apply extra colour to the main black print colour.

Print Size: 10½ x 8¼ inches, 265 x 210 mm (approx)
