Make original reproducible relief block prints!
Combine monotype with relief prints to create colorful pieces of art. All materials provided, so get ready to get inky and walk away with your own stamped paper!
Linocut is a graphic relief printmaking technique in which a block of linoleum is carved by hand to produce a matrix that can be used for multiple prints. The linoleum block is inked with a roller and then impressed onto paper or fabric.
