Proof Print of ‘Marigold’ Linocut

I finally have proof printed a multi-block linocut of my ‘Marigold’ design. You can read about the early design process in this earlier blog ‘weekly-sketch-marigold-04112014’. I need to work on the registration a bit, but I am pleased with the result. I also used water-based inks for the first time; Caligo Safewash Relief and Schmincke Aqua Linoldruck ink, I am pleased with their performance and definitely will be using them again. Also heartening to be using inks that are kinder to the environment, as well as being less expensive than oil based inks. Please click on the following links to see the pdf product guides from the manufacturers: Caligo-ReliefFlyer_aqua_LINOLDRUCK

Below are images of the three blocks and the final proof printed – (photographed hanging whilst drying so they look a bit skewed – the black frame is a rectangle in reality):
