Lino Prints

Term: 4 Year: 2012

There are many variations to a lino print.

Firstly a one colour print can be hand coloured using artist quality pencils or water colour paints.

There is also the addition of rice and tissue paper, this is a technique called chine colle.
Papers are torn or cut and are adhered to the printing paper, the lino block is then printed on top of the rice and decorative papers. This creates the illusion of a range of colours working their way through the solid black print. 

Year 7 students presented their work as a triptych showing the three outcomes to their print making.
