Lino cutting lesson 1

I got my first lesson from Dijanne on Monday.

I had some brown 'lino' but sent for some grey 'lino' and 'soft cut' lino sheet from Jacksons Art and had to wait for them to arrive before I could start.

I used a piece of the 'soft cut' to try the first exercise - using lino cutting tools to create a sample block.


This is what it looks like printed on to paper.


It was a very useful exercise to see what mark each tool makes.

Hi Susan - your sampler looks terrific. I have been meaning to try stamp carving for ages so I might have to do this course sometime soon myself judging from your results!
