Lino step by step

  1. 1. Lino step by Step
  2. 2. First Things First • Put your name and form on the back • You only get one of these plates so its important that it doesn’t get lost!
  3. 3. The First Cutting • This is your first cut • Remember the Health and Safety Instructions! • Cut out the OUTLINES ONLY
  4. 4. Your First Print (LIGHTEST COLOUR) • Ink up your roller with ink • Transfer the ink onto your plate • Try to get an even layer of ink • Remember to make 2 prints onto newsprint paper
  5. 5. The Second Cutting • After washing and drying your plate you are ready to cut away (or reduce) more of your plate • Remember Health and Safety! • This time any thing you cut away will stay the same colour as the first ink layer
  6. 6. The Second Print (MIDDLE COLOUR) • Print this colour once on separate paper • Print twice more, this time aligning it perfectly on top of 2 of your other colour prints.
  7. 7. The Third Cutting • Time to reduce your plate again • Remember Health and Safety! • See how much of the plate has been removed
  8. 8. The Final Print (DARKEST COLOUR) • Place the plate back over the first and second print • See how the colours from the other layers show through • Do this to four of your prints • Stick the best one in your book
