J Is For Jays Linocut

£ 180.00

J is for Jays is a part of an alphabet series by Babs Pease.
A beautiful multi layer linocut of Jay Birds, showing the amazing craft of this print process.
Linocut is a printmaking technique, a variant of woodcut in which a sheet of linoleum ( sometimes mounted on a wooden block) is used for a relief surface. A design is cut into the lino surface with a sharp knife, V-shaped chisel or gouge, with the raised (uncarved) areas representing a reversal (mirror image) of the parts to show printed. The lino sheet is inked with a roller and then pressed onto the paper. The actual printing can be done by hand (using a wooden spoon) or put through a relief press.
Multiple colours can be printed by keying the paper to a frame around the woodblocks (using a different block for each colour).
The main image is 30 x 30 cm but this print comes mounted on a 50 x 50 mount ready for framing.
