Pasta Printing Press – The Video (with added cat)

10 Jul

Cat printing 2


A short video showing the process of printing a drypoint with a recycled pasta making machine. It’s easy. The video is just over 4 minutes long and features my cat as well.


Please try it, it’s very easy and convenient πŸ™‚

      You’re very welcome Anneke. I’m glad you’re getting back into printmaking. If you have any problems, please let me know 😊

        I just found a pasta maker for next to nothing a few minutes ago. Next, I have to get the rest of the materials.

        I use the paper drypoint plates and drypoint shop mix oil-based printing ink from Intaglio Printmakers in London πŸ™‚

        I am in Canada. Luckily. There’s an art supply store in town I can get it the ink and plates, there.

    Love your video… someine shared it on facebook. What did you use as your plate?

    • Rosie Scribblah July 30, 2015 at 08:08 #

      Thank you Sue. I used a paper drypoint plate from Intaglio Printmakers in London. Very cheap and easy. I will be doing another short video soon on using these paper plates with both a pasta press and conventional etching press. Glad you like it 😊

      oh dear, is it because you live in a place where YouTube is banned or is it just not showing up? If you don’t have access to YouTube, Husb is about to put my videos onto Vimeo as well as YouTube. Hope that helps πŸ˜€

    I love this, Rosie! I have a pasta machine that hardly gets any use. Will have to try this!! I may have to buy toaster tongs (LOL) though. Love your cat at the end! Thanks for the wonderful video!

      You’re very welcome Linda. I hope you give it a go, it’s so easy – even with the cat πŸ˜‰

      Thank you πŸ˜€ Hope you have a nice day – sending lots of rain over, I’m afraid 😦

    She loves to help, cat-wise, by sitting on whatever I’m doing.

    Thanks for the demonstration, not to mention assistance from Sparta puss. My moggie was meowing as I watched – just peeved because she wasn’t getting my full attention!

    • Rosie Scribblah July 12, 2015 at 08:32 #

      Aaawww, you’ll have to get her to help you, so she doesn’t feel left out πŸ˜€

    That was lovely! So, what are you using to film your work?
    I’m going to have to check out those little drypoint plates. Looks much easier to use than the traditional metal plates. Can you use metal plates through the pasta machine?
    Nigel says “Hi” to Ms Sparta P. I bet she won’t even talk to him now that she’s a star! πŸ˜‰

    • Rosie Scribblah July 11, 2015 at 08:43 #

      Hiya Gale, Husb filmed it on his Samsung Galaxy S3 phone and edited on Adobe Premiere. I haven’t tried metal plates yet as I always use the paper ones these days, cheaper and easier. Message me your address and I will pop a piece in the post for you. Sparta says “Hi” back to Nigel, but in a very condescending manner πŸ˜‰

    Sparta Puss is clearly the star of this show!
    Thanks for the nice video tutorial, Rosie. Great to hear your voice again!

    • Rosie Scribblah July 11, 2015 at 08:39 #

      Oh, don’t encourage her πŸ˜‰. I’m going to be doing more visible, but don’t tell the cat!

    Thanks so much for the video. I love learning a new way of making prints without a press.
