30 Awesome and Fabulous Examples of Lino Printing

Lino Printing is a popular print making technique using by many professional artists. Lino printing was originally held in low esteem by the art world until Pablo Picasso made a series of lino prints in the 1950s. Lino Printing or Lino Cutting as it is also known is a block printing technique. Lino printing is quite a simple process and as a result is it widely used in schools. It is a great way to introduce children to the art of printmaking.

The Lino Cutting and Printing Process

Firstly a design is choose to be printed. A mirror image of this design is transferred to the lino block. Typically this is done using tracing paper or sometimes the sketch is made directly to the lino block. Areas of the design are then carved from the lino block. The uncarved areas of the block are the parts that get printed. At this point the lino block is inked with use of a roller and printed onto paper for fabric.

Prints can be made using one or more colours. If you use just one colour then the print is complete at this stage. If you use multiple colours then once the first print is finished the lino block is cleaned and dried. Another section of the lino block is then carved. The section that has been carved will not be printed for the subsequent colour. The process continues until all of the colours have been printed.

    While it may look a bit easy to make (so you show it), it`s not easy at all, I tried sketching some designs with this method, the smallest fix requires large deletion, which destroys the paint.
