Print: Dutch Gilt + Stencilled Background

Dutch Gilt Relief printing is where a lino plate has metal leaf applied to its surface which is brought into contact with treated, sized paper. When pressure is applied, the non-recessed surface will leave leaf on the paper, whereas the recessed areas will not. When perfectly dry, the excess leaf is carefully removed revealing the pattern. 

A stencilled "Harlequin" background

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.

Print Size: 18 x 12¾ inches. 455 x 320 mm (approx)
