Working on Prints

I’ve been working on some new print ideas lately. In the gallery below you can see the initial sketch for a lino cut. Then someone drew my attention to an invitation for submissions for a screen print. The print can use up to 3 colours so I scanned it and work on some colour ideas. Having settled on 3 colours I decided to digitally trace the sketch to create the final design.

Tiki Tea Light Holder

Well, it’s been awhile since I posted on here but I haven’t been idle…

plain wood tea light holder I found this tealight holder in a charity shop and decided to make it a bit more interesting.

decorated tea light holder I don’t know what wood this is; looks like pine but has a fine grain.

There were some troublesome knots…

After toying with the idea of rubbing white pigment into the incised areas, PNG style, I went for a darker finish to match the original stain.

I was able to pierce the top row to let the light through, as seen here.
