After spending lots of time creating illustrations for Cloth Ears, it’s been lovely getting back to print making. The whole process of making the tile is sooooo therapeutic and then you can just have so much fun printing on different surfaces…. but I confess the time consuming tile making is my favourite part.
Initially I tried to use a clear polymer tile…. easy to trace a design through. But other than that, I didn’t really like it at all. It was very difficult to cut and almost possible to create detail…, I like detail.
God bless the Lino tile..especially when you find a piece of floor covering, ready for the skip the turn out to be the softest, easy to cut Lino in the whole world… interestingly the blue permanent marker I used… turned red on contact. Fabulous!!!
Really happy with the finished result.. and because I always cut one tile that I can use over and over again. I usually I inject colour by painting the background or by creating a collage… looking forward to that bit.
