checkout youtube and just type in printmaking - you will get some videos that show you how.

there is a lot of stuff on the internet about it - just google printmaking.

Hello SUNSHINEART,

Your post intrigues me and I would love to explore this activity further. Any advice or information you could share to point me in the right direction? Any websites that your aware of which may be helpful in starting this?

Sometimes I feel I am an artist just waiting to happen. I am 56 years old and have been struggling for a way to express myself artistically other than through cooking (and overeating). I love to sketch and work with charcoals but have developed allergies, the charcoal irritates my nasal cavities and lungs so have not done that for some time.

I appreciate you mentioning this and any additional information would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

In peace,

You use either wood or linoleum and use carving tools to make an imprint of an image you choose. You then apply ink to the surface and pass it through a press - this is what gives you a print. It gives you the possibility to create more than one image with your art pieces.
I hope I was clear with my explanation.

I started doing linocut this week - and I am hooked - I love it.
Has anyone tried this - or does anyone have suggestions on what works for them emoticon
