INTRO TO PRINTMAKING
“Printmaking is about discovery, about experimentation; art itself is about
             discovery and experimentation.” - Brian Jones
WHAT IS PRINTMAKING?
A FORM OF ART THAT INVOLVES TRANSFERRING
INK TO PAPER.

THE PROCESS IS CAPABLE OF MAKING MULTIPLE
COPIES OF THE SAME ARTWORK.

 EACH INDIVIDUAL COPY IS CALLED A “PRINT” OR
 AN “IMPRESSION.”

 THE SET OF PRINTS IS CALLED “AN EDITION.”

   A SIGNED AND NUMBERED SET OF PRINTS IS
   CALLED “A LIMITED EDITION.”
A BRIEF HISTORY OF
          PRINTMAKING
PRINTMAKING
ORIGINATED IN CHINA
AROUND 105 C.E.

DURING THE GOTHIC AND
RENAISSANCE PERIODS
OF ART, RELIEF PRINTING
BECAME VERY POPULAR IN
EUROPE.
HOW ARE PRINTS MADE?

PRINTS ARE MADE
FROM A
“MATRIX” (ALSO KNOW
AS A “MAT”) WHICH
CAN BE MADE FROM
MANY DIFFERENT
MATERIALS.

PRINTS ARE MADE BY
TRANSFERRING INK
FROM THE MATRIX TO
PAPER OR ANOTHER
MATERIAL.
TYPES OF PRINTMAKING
THERE ARE 3 BASIC CATEGORIES OF
PRINTMAKING:

 RELIEF - INK IS APPLIED TO THE SURFACE OF
 THE MATRIX.

 INTAGLIO - INK IS APPLIED BENEATH THE
 SURFACE OF THE MATRIX

 STENCIL - INK IS PRESSED THROUGH A
 PREPARED SCREEN.
REGISTRATION
 WHEN YOU ARE MAKING A MULTI-STEP PRINT, IT IS IMPORTANT TO
ALIGN THE PAPER AND THE PRINTING ELEMENT THE SAME WAY EACH
         TIME. THIS PROCESS IS CALLED REGISTRATION.
WHAT WE ARE DOING
WE WILL BE CREATING
PRINTS USING
LINOLEUM, WHICH IS
CALLED A LINO CUT.

THIS IS A FORM OF
RELIEF PRINTING. (THINK
OF WHAT YOU’RE DOING
AS CREATING A BIG
STAMP.)
HISTORY OF THE LINO CUT
THIS TYPE OF PRINTMAKING BEGAN IN THE 1860’S
WITH GERMAN EXPRESSIONISTS.

FRANZ CIŽEK, AN AUSTRIAN ARTIST AND
TEACHER, RECOGNIZED ITS POTENTIAL FOR THE
USE OF TEACHING SCHOOLCHILDREN.

THE FIRST MAJOR ARTIST TO CREATE LINO CUTS
WAS ERICH HECKEL IN 1903.

MATISSE AND PICASSO SPURRED THE
POPULARITY OF LINO CUTS IN THE 1940’S AND
1950’S.
MEDIUM OF THE OPPRESSED

BECAUSE OF THE RELATIVE INEXPENSE OF
CREATING LINO CUTS, IT HAS OFTEN BEEN
UTILIZED IN POORER COUNTRIES.

 THIS HAS ALLOWED ARTISTS WHO LACKED
 ACCESS TO MORE EXPENSIVE PRINTING TOOLS
 A MEANS OF PRODUCING PRINTS.

 IN BRITAIN, CLAUDE FLIGHT (1881–1955)
 ADVOCATED THE USE OF THE LINO CUT AS A
 VIABLE MEANS OF EXPRESSION FOR THE
 LOWER CLASS.
TOOLS
  FIRST YOU NEED A DESIGN! - SKETCH YOUR IDEA ONTO A
PIECE OF PAPER THE SAME SIZE AS YOUR LINOLEUM BLOCK.
TOOLS
TRACING AND CARBON PAPER TO TRANSFER A MIRROR
 IMAGE OF YOUR DESIGN TO THE BLOCK OF LINOLEUM.
TOOLS
A SHEET OF LINOLEUM - YOU WILL CARVE OUT YOUR
 DESIGN AND USE THIS TO PRINT YOUR ARTWORK.
TOOLS
INK - YOU WILL APPLY THIS TO THE SURFACE OF THE
  LINO CUT, AND THEN TRANSFER IT TO THE PAPER.
TOOLS
LINOCUTTING TOOLS AND BLADES - YOU WILL USE
  THESE TO CUT AWAY PARTS OF THE LINOLEUM.
TOOLS
A PIECE OF GLASS - YOU WILL USE THIS TO SPREAD THE
      INK PRIOR TO PUTTING IT ON THE LINO CUT.
TOOLS
BRAYER- ROLLS INK ONTO THE SURFACE OF THE
                 MATRIX.
TOOLS
   PRINTING PRESS - APPLIES PRESSURE TO THE
LINOLEUM, PRESSING THE IMAGE ONTO THE PAPER.
STEPS
1. CREATE A DESIGN.
2. TRANSFER THE MIRROR IMAGE OF THE DESIGN TO THE
   LINO BLOCK.  TYPICALLY THIS IS DONE USING TRACING
   PAPER AND CARBON PAPER.
3. DARKEN THE LINES ON THE LINO BLOCK WITH A
   SHARPIE.
4. CARVE THE DESIGN ON THE LINO BLOCK.  THE
   UNCARVED AREAS OF THE BLOCK ARE THE PARTS THAT
   GET PRINTED.  
5. THE LINO BLOCK IS INKED WITH A BRAYER.
6. THE IMAGE IS PRINTED ONTO PAPER EITHER MANUALLY
   OR WITH A PRINTING PRESS.
PRINTING WITH MULTIPLE
            COLORS
ONCE THE FIRST PRINT IS FINISHED, CLEAN AND DRY THE
LINO BLOCK.

WHATEVER AREA OF THE DESIGN YOU WANT TO REMAIN
THE FIRST COLOR MUST BE CARVED FROM THE LINO BLOCK.

APPLY THE NEXT COLOR TO THE BLOCK AND TRANSFER IT
TO THE PRINT.

REPEAT THIS PROCESS UNTIL LL THE COLORS HAVE BEEN
APPLIED.

  IT IS IMPORTANT TO MOVE FROM THE LIGHTEST VALUE TO
  THE DARKEST VALUE WHEN PRINTING MULTIPLE COLORS.

Intro to printmaking

  • 1. INTRO TO PRINTMAKING “Printmaking is about discovery, about experimentation; art itself is about discovery and experimentation.” - Brian Jones
  • 2. WHAT IS PRINTMAKING? A FORM OF ART THAT INVOLVES TRANSFERRING INK TO PAPER. THE PROCESS IS CAPABLE OF MAKING MULTIPLE COPIES OF THE SAME ARTWORK. EACH INDIVIDUAL COPY IS CALLED A “PRINT” OR AN “IMPRESSION.” THE SET OF PRINTS IS CALLED “AN EDITION.” A SIGNED AND NUMBERED SET OF PRINTS IS CALLED “A LIMITED EDITION.”
  • 3. A BRIEF HISTORY OF PRINTMAKING PRINTMAKING ORIGINATED IN CHINA AROUND 105 C.E. DURING THE GOTHIC AND RENAISSANCE PERIODS OF ART, RELIEF PRINTING BECAME VERY POPULAR IN EUROPE.
  • 4. HOW ARE PRINTS MADE? PRINTS ARE MADE FROM A “MATRIX” (ALSO KNOW AS A “MAT”) WHICH CAN BE MADE FROM MANY DIFFERENT MATERIALS. PRINTS ARE MADE BY TRANSFERRING INK FROM THE MATRIX TO PAPER OR ANOTHER MATERIAL.
  • 5. TYPES OF PRINTMAKING THERE ARE 3 BASIC CATEGORIES OF PRINTMAKING: RELIEF - INK IS APPLIED TO THE SURFACE OF THE MATRIX. INTAGLIO - INK IS APPLIED BENEATH THE SURFACE OF THE MATRIX STENCIL - INK IS PRESSED THROUGH A PREPARED SCREEN.
  • 6. REGISTRATION WHEN YOU ARE MAKING A MULTI-STEP PRINT, IT IS IMPORTANT TO ALIGN THE PAPER AND THE PRINTING ELEMENT THE SAME WAY EACH TIME. THIS PROCESS IS CALLED REGISTRATION.
  • 7. WHAT WE ARE DOING WE WILL BE CREATING PRINTS USING LINOLEUM, WHICH IS CALLED A LINO CUT. THIS IS A FORM OF RELIEF PRINTING. (THINK OF WHAT YOU’RE DOING AS CREATING A BIG STAMP.)
  • 8. HISTORY OF THE LINO CUT THIS TYPE OF PRINTMAKING BEGAN IN THE 1860’S WITH GERMAN EXPRESSIONISTS. FRANZ CIŽEK, AN AUSTRIAN ARTIST AND TEACHER, RECOGNIZED ITS POTENTIAL FOR THE USE OF TEACHING SCHOOLCHILDREN. THE FIRST MAJOR ARTIST TO CREATE LINO CUTS WAS ERICH HECKEL IN 1903. MATISSE AND PICASSO SPURRED THE POPULARITY OF LINO CUTS IN THE 1940’S AND 1950’S.
  • 9. MEDIUM OF THE OPPRESSED BECAUSE OF THE RELATIVE INEXPENSE OF CREATING LINO CUTS, IT HAS OFTEN BEEN UTILIZED IN POORER COUNTRIES. THIS HAS ALLOWED ARTISTS WHO LACKED ACCESS TO MORE EXPENSIVE PRINTING TOOLS A MEANS OF PRODUCING PRINTS. IN BRITAIN, CLAUDE FLIGHT (1881–1955) ADVOCATED THE USE OF THE LINO CUT AS A VIABLE MEANS OF EXPRESSION FOR THE LOWER CLASS.
  • 10. TOOLS FIRST YOU NEED A DESIGN! - SKETCH YOUR IDEA ONTO A PIECE OF PAPER THE SAME SIZE AS YOUR LINOLEUM BLOCK.
  • 11. TOOLS TRACING AND CARBON PAPER TO TRANSFER A MIRROR IMAGE OF YOUR DESIGN TO THE BLOCK OF LINOLEUM.
  • 12. TOOLS A SHEET OF LINOLEUM - YOU WILL CARVE OUT YOUR DESIGN AND USE THIS TO PRINT YOUR ARTWORK.
  • 13. TOOLS INK - YOU WILL APPLY THIS TO THE SURFACE OF THE LINO CUT, AND THEN TRANSFER IT TO THE PAPER.
  • 14. TOOLS LINOCUTTING TOOLS AND BLADES - YOU WILL USE THESE TO CUT AWAY PARTS OF THE LINOLEUM.
  • 15. TOOLS A PIECE OF GLASS - YOU WILL USE THIS TO SPREAD THE INK PRIOR TO PUTTING IT ON THE LINO CUT.
  • 16. TOOLS BRAYER- ROLLS INK ONTO THE SURFACE OF THE MATRIX.
  • 17. TOOLS PRINTING PRESS - APPLIES PRESSURE TO THE LINOLEUM, PRESSING THE IMAGE ONTO THE PAPER.
  • 18. STEPS 1. CREATE A DESIGN. 2. TRANSFER THE MIRROR IMAGE OF THE DESIGN TO THE LINO BLOCK.  TYPICALLY THIS IS DONE USING TRACING PAPER AND CARBON PAPER. 3. DARKEN THE LINES ON THE LINO BLOCK WITH A SHARPIE. 4. CARVE THE DESIGN ON THE LINO BLOCK.  THE UNCARVED AREAS OF THE BLOCK ARE THE PARTS THAT GET PRINTED.   5. THE LINO BLOCK IS INKED WITH A BRAYER. 6. THE IMAGE IS PRINTED ONTO PAPER EITHER MANUALLY OR WITH A PRINTING PRESS.
  • 19. PRINTING WITH MULTIPLE COLORS ONCE THE FIRST PRINT IS FINISHED, CLEAN AND DRY THE LINO BLOCK. WHATEVER AREA OF THE DESIGN YOU WANT TO REMAIN THE FIRST COLOR MUST BE CARVED FROM THE LINO BLOCK. APPLY THE NEXT COLOR TO THE BLOCK AND TRANSFER IT TO THE PRINT. REPEAT THIS PROCESS UNTIL LL THE COLORS HAVE BEEN APPLIED. IT IS IMPORTANT TO MOVE FROM THE LIGHTEST VALUE TO THE DARKEST VALUE WHEN PRINTING MULTIPLE COLORS.
  • 20. PORTRAIT DE JEUNE FILLE, D’APRÈS CRANACH LE JEUNE. II (1958) PICASSO
  • 21. STILL LIFE WITH GLASS UNDER THE LAMP (1962) PABLO PICASSO
  • 22. MALCOLM X SPEAKS FOR US (1969) ELIZABETH CATLETT
