There’s an Icon exhibit coming up at a nearby church I’ve been visiting. I decided to turn this drawing into a stamp.
And then, just as I was about to start, I remembered how easily the last stamp split and cracked after a few uses.
So I decided to carve it into a linoleum block. I traced the drawing *(reduced by 50%) onto the block using red transfer paper and a stylus…
I carefully carved along the lines with the second smallest cutter tip I had. My set is the standard Speedball set you find at craft stores. I also used Speedball brayer and printing inks.
Will I ever learn!?
I tried this aged parchment first, but it was too bumpy for a clear print, so I kept trying on different papers.
Yes, I really do my art in the kitchen, as you see here. No studio (yet).
