This method of woodcutting is where you roll up the plate and then adheve tissue paper to certain places, being careful when laying the paper on top then printing through the press. Chine Colle adds something to a print. It can be tricky but well worth the effort.

    So detailed l can only imagine the amount of patience needed to create such a stunning piece XXXX

  • Well I think I’ve hurt my hand carving the wood. I am hoping not because I have designed and am ready to cut my next work which is going to be sooooooooo great. But my hand kills and so I will have to have a break.
    whats with getting older and falling apart?
