Linocut – Crow with Nut

Initial print. I used masking and caustic soda to etch a texture into the background.


I printed my initial plate in both light yellow and then in cyan blue versions. I had too much ink on my first run which flooded the etched background. Subsequent prints were far better with less ink on the roller. I palette’d out using the pages of an old newspaper to remove excess ink before rolling out on the plate.
