Lino for printmaking, mixed quality 3 piece pack size A6 (10x15cm) blue softcut + grey mid density + traditional hessian back



Lino which I use in my personal work and also sell in my workshops which I teach both at my Art Studio & online. - for printmaking tutorials. I offer 3 different types and here is a pack of 3 sheet size A6 or around 10/15cm. This pack contains 1 sheet of each quality. There are advantages and disadvantages to each different type of lino plate. 1. Blue easy & soft cut - more rubberised and easier to cut for beginners & kids - but can produce a slightly less crisp print due to rubber content. This is great for those who like a fully consistent print. 2. Grey reversible polymer - a quality which has a mid density. Easy to wash and produces a crisp result. In my workshops, most students prefer this quality for cutting. It produces a print with crisp lines but can have a 'spongey' or worn/washed effect - most people love this characteristic lino look! 3. Traditional grey - single sided with hessian back. Some printers prefer this traditional material - feels like cutting sandstone - avoid drenching in soapy water due to fabric backing - takes a while to dry. Blocks for creative block printing cut to size with scissors. Blocks are approx. 3mm thick Draw design directly with a pencil, rub away mistakes with your finger. Use tracing paper to flip your design with trace paper, parchment or specialist carbon copy paper. Use for all block printing activities

Clever Hands is a small business & Art Studio based in Liverpool UK run by Artist Catherine Carmyllie. When the pandemic hit, creative classes at the studio had to pause. Catherine began sending out arts materials by post so that her students could continue being creative at home. Since then the business has grown and has 3 learning options: purchase a kit online, visit the studio in person or watch the video tutorials free online, learning at your own pace. Catherine also exhibits & sells her own artwork.
