Making a Mess Printing

 Actually surprisingly I didn't make that much of a mess, besides getting paint all over my hands :p

Wanted to see if the lino needed any more carving before I printed it with ink, so out came the gelliplate. The above is a print pulled from the plate after I put the lino down on it, and the below  is a rough print from the lino after I put it on the gelliplate and it grabbed the paint off of it.

Don't think it needs any more carving, if anything I probably should have left more on the wooden part of the ship so it looked more wooden.

Using the gelli-plate could get interesting with this one--looks great.

Nice job! I haven't done lino yet but was considering doing it with the kids I teach art to.

I like the beginning of your peacock too!

I love it, it is so beautifully green. It definitely looks like a figurehead on a ship.
