Any printmakers here? Litho, relief, screen, ect.?
I'd like to see either some artists you like or maybe your own work you've done.
Beginning printmaking class. We had to combined 2 things. I got The head of Emperor Constantine and my bathroom.
Reductive multicolor relief print.
Intaglio aquatint monochrome
yes, i am a master, you may ask me any questions.
I concentrated in printmaking in college, but haven't pulled a print in years.
These are relief, sintra-cuts, about 3' square, on tea-stained paper.
this is wicked! is it a mono print with a paint brush? also do you have a blog/more work?
Allso printmaking is my preferred/only meduim one day hoping to being a master
yes its a mono print with lino ink mixed with black acrylic. brush is a 2 sided skewer with one side sporting a cigarette filter that has been tattered.
>trade secret, those things are fucking amazing and dead cheap, 2 bucks gets you almost 50 filters.
I have a blog but its mostly digital stuff.
>nice lino cut btw
>pic related, more on subject prints.
self portrait, line etching + aquatint
So if i'm a complete noob, but want to start printmaking because i think it's amazing where do i start? Where can i buy materials? At a normal art store? Also with which printmaking technique should i start first, because i'm watching videos and researching right now and some of these guys are using machines and shit. Links will also be helpful, but whatever.
>Where can i buy materials? At a normal art store?
Yes. Hobby chain stores (hobby lobby, michaels) won't have much, but actual art supply stores should have the basics. order online if not.
> Also with which printmaking technique should i start first
classes usually start with monotypes and relief printing. if you print relief (woodblock, lino) with rice paper and a wooden spoon, you won't need a press, otherwise you'll need to find a printmakers collaborative near you.
took me 20 seconds .
>stay jelly mate / post your work/ here comes merc
i made that simple woodblock to create "clay block" prints. end result are tablets that look ancient as fuck.
Here's the first wood cut and first print I ever did - it's on full 24x32 bfk
And here's my latest print - lithography also on full size bfk
Yeah I've done it. Its kind of a pain in the ass and isn't my first choice of medium. Clean up is AWFUL.
Here's a monotype print I did.
I did this a few years ago. I want to do more but with acid or wood. This is hard lino.
anything really, its a very expansive subject, i would recommend keeping it simple when you start, something such as lino cut, as it replicated woodblock but in a way that is easier to print and physically cut.
its also cheaper as one does not need to buy wood and one also does not need expensive cutting blades, cheap lino and cheap blades will do.
