Lino-Printing, Form V

Daphne Wright and Milly Murphy, Form V demonstrate the technique of lino-printing using a printing press. Lino-prinitng is a process where the lino is subtracted to reveal the image. Ink is then applied to the lino's surface and printed onto paper.  A number of colours can be layered upon one another creating various contrasts and textures. These prints are works in progress and they will develop more colour and texture as the printing process continues.
