Relief Printing

As a class, we made our own relief prints using supplies donated by the University of Oregon and staff members.We were given linoleum tiles, which are malleable and have a smooth surface.


We cut our designs into the pads using small, bladed tools. Our designs were based on pictures we drew beforehand. After our designs were cut out, we rolled ink onto the tiles making sure there were no globs on the lino-cuts.


Once the ink was rolled we could print the design onto paper, finishing the process. It was a creative and interesting process.
