Cutting Revenge

The first cuts

Today I started cutting the little lino block of the word “Revenge” which will be stamped onto the screenprint I’m developing for the artist Jamie Reid and GS Artists.

First, I had to decide whether to cut the block in wood or lino. The MDF is easier to cut and it’s easy to transfer the design using carbon paper, as the surface isn’t oily like lino. But the lino has a slightly rough surface which I quite like when it’s printed up and I think its hardness is an advantage because it’s better for fine cutting. So I went with the lino. I love the little curls….
