Practical art

This summer, I played around with various printing techniques, and hit upon a really cool product–foam printing blocks by Speedball. These soft, spongy rectangles can be carved with linoleum cutters, covered with a thin coat of ink or paint, then pressed onto paper or fabric. The effect is that of a wood cut graphic, but the carving process is much easier because the material is soft and easy to manipulate. Here’s the final product created and being sold in local shops!
