Print: Dutch Gilt + Tinted 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. 

Tinting - The surface of the paper is painted with a pigmented paste which gives a transluscent colour for the print to sit on.
