Print: Dutch Gilt Relief Print on a 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. 

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. 

Four colours have been applied in a geometric pattern we call "Harlequin"
