Repeat printed fish, the original design comes from a 16th century book of heraldry.
Suitable for bookbinding, box making, picture framing, furniture decoration and the general paper crafts.
Print: Lino relief 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.
