Stencil brushes have densely packed bristles, and a round profile with a flat bottom. A range of sizes from 1/4’’ up to 1” will do for most projects. I have yet to come across a quality stencil brush that holds and disperses the paint satisfactorily. Linocuts of Black, Syme & Spowers - Visual Arts, Creating, making and presenting.

Linocuts of Black, Syme & Spowers - Visual Arts, Creating, making and presenting

The National Gallery of Australia has more than 100,000 works in its collection—an extraordinary reservoir of creative vision and cultural history, from decorative arts to photography and sculpture. Yet on a visit to the gallery, you’ll see only the tip of this iceberg. Carefully stored away are the things that can’t be placed on permanent display. These unseen gems include works of exquisite fragility, from brilliant hand-painted fabrics to delicate works on paper. Elana Goren Printmaking: Chine Collé. I have been asked to describe chine collé and so I thought I'd share my explanation here.

Elana Goren Printmaking: Chine Collé

Basically, chine collé is a collage technique used by printmakers. Very thin Asian papers or tissue papers are often used to create color fields and textural effects within a print in such a way that the glued paper is seamlessly integrated with the inked image impression from the plate. Nontoxic Printmaking, Safe Painting & Printed Art. The Magic of Electro-Chemical EtchingMetal Salt etching is a new methodology which is fundamentally different from the aggressive chemistry of traditional acid etching with its hazardous gas emissions and by-products.

Nontoxic Printmaking, Safe Painting & Printed Art

The new method is akin to creating a liquid battery. The etching battery consists of two types of metal that act as the charged poles of the battery - anode and cathode - and an electrolyte medium (here the salt solution) that transmits electric charge and allows metal ions to migrate. The process lacks none of the mystique of acid etching. The alchemical magic of seeing a solid metal vanish in a liquid is in many ways an even more tactile and engaging activity and produces startlingly good results.The dissolved copper ions (from copper sulfate) create a powerful electric potential which literally pulls away the surface atoms of the silver-grey metal plates it comes into contact with.

Chine Colle References. Chine Collé Process The term ‘chine’ comes from thin paper and ‘colle’ is to glue.

Chine Colle References

Chine colle is a method commonly used for attaching sheets of thin archival paper to a print during the printing process. The thin paper is more receptive to fine detail than heavy printmaking paper but is usually too thin and fragile to print upon without the support of a heavier paper underneath. Nontoxic Printmaking, Safe Painting & Printed Art. Nontoxic Printmaking, Safe Painting & Printed Art. A shiny new metal plate is a sensitive base which will register any mechanical activity taking place on it.

Nontoxic Printmaking, Safe Painting & Printed Art

Anything that in any way marks, scores or scratches the plate surface can be included in the repertoire of dry mark-making. Sharp pointed objects such as needles or nails will score grooves and raise burrs in the metal and are most useful for linear work. Areas of tone and texture can be produced by dragging abrasive materials such as sandpaper, steel wool or a wire brush across the surface. Apart from the more improvised equipment, there are a large number of tools that have been developed specifically for intaglio printmaking purposes. Some of these, like the hand held burin, are as ancient as the art of embellishing objects with incised designs; while others, such as electrically powered engraving tools are more recent developments.

Technique of the Week: Monotype v. Monoprint… what’s the big difference? - S+ART. When it comes to the printmaking process, it is difficult to keep track of the various methods, let alone their corresponding names and terminology.

Technique of the Week: Monotype v. Monoprint… what’s the big difference? - S+ART

To top that off, when names like monotype and monoprint are doled out to printing processes that in actuality are two separate things, it is just the tip of the iceberg for the confusion that may arise when discussing and studying fine art printmaking. According to, monoprints "combine using some permanent marks on the plate along with variations of how ink is manipulated in the image. Each print is unique due to the various ways ink was manipulated from monoprint to monoprint. " The same site explains the process of making a monotype: "To create a monotype the artist paints or rolls ink onto a blank plate. The image is created by manipulating ink with various tools (brushes, rags, stencils, etc.)

I like to print my linocuts onto very fine Japanese papers; such as Gampi Silk Tissue (10gsm, used in the picture above, a page from my book Sampler), Iwaki and Kozo Extra Light.

Elizabeth Banfield Linocuts: Lino Printing with Fine Papers

The whole sheet of Gampi Silk is 61 x 46cm, and using the full sheet can involve some challenges, least of all, getting the paper on the inked block without slipping or creasing. When I first started experimenting with these papers, I watched a YouTube video (Nana Shiomi) which inspired me to try different kinds of application shelves.

My first prototype was a bit large and cumbersome, but I eventually came up with the model pictured below. Printing Linocuts…some common problems… The aim of printing a linoblock is to achieve a smooth even transfer of ink from the raised surface areas (or relief) that has been left after carving away the areas you wish to remain white or in the case of a reduction linocut the areas of colour you are building from the background to the foreground as each colour dries and another ‘layer’ is added.
