|I have 2 presses in my studio. A Kelsey Excelsior 6 x 10 Tabletop press and a Chandler & Price (C&P) 10 x 15 letterpress. I started learning on the small press and recently graduated to the larger machine.
To read the details about how we moved the C&P and see links to letterpress resources, click here.
|Here's a simple glimpse into my process and how I go about planning a project. Currently I'm interested in linoleum carving. You can use a press for a variety of printing techniques and this is just the start to endless possibilities!|
1. First step is to trace my original drawing onto tracing paper.
5. I place tracing paper over the top so I can make some decisions about colors and where they will go.
9. I lock my first color into the chase.
Here is the final print. So I carved a light yellow, dark yellow, and purple layer first then followed that with the yellow ocre linework layer. Lastly I added the text layer, which was printed with lead type.
