Lino cutting lesson 1 continued

I've finished the rest of lesson 1.

Exercise 2 was to do a positive and negative image of a leaf.

This first block is made with 'Soft Cut' which is a lot easier to carve into. I didn't think it would give a sharp print but it seems to.

This second block is carved with proper lino. It's much harder to cut into so I heated it with an iron which helped.

and this is the print I got from them.

This is the last exercise to carve a block about 7cms square.

then repeat print it

Your positive and negative designs work a treat. I particularly like the leaves. Great work!
