Who was the bright spark who said 'you have to suffer for your art'?? I'm sure he didn't mean you need to keep stabbing yourself LOLHope you finish it before you run out of Ban-Aids
That looks like the hard stuff, meaning you have to put some muscle behind the carve, meaning when you slip, ouch! I recall from art college we had these plywood boards, with a raised edge on one side. Lino was push up against the edge with your left (or 'off' hand) and that left you free to carve in the direction away from your body (and other hand). Just a thought. And yes, silk screen layers come to mind, but lino has its own look, and will add its own voice to the work. Let it happen.
Wow! I love it.... It looks like it should be an ancient symbol.
Nice! :) I used to stab myself a lot when doing lino cuts, too. I hope you still have some fingers left by the time this project is done! ;)I think it would make an awesome silk screen, too :)
Nice work but take care of those fingers
i don't know who said it, may they get stabbed with paint brushes :p
it is actually the soft stuff so not too hard to cut, but the blades seem to slip easier when cutting :/ something that looks like this? i have a pretty big one which works great but my hands still seem to get in the way :p
thank you! :D
I figure its a hazard of the job :p wish i had some screens so i could do some silk screen prints at home
thanks shashi :) i will try
