Reductive Ink printing is somewhat of a cross between block printing and screen printing. Using a table top for a print plate and tracing vellum for masking and texturing, one basically reduces or builds up ink on either the plate or the paper in layers and transfers the image via pressure on the backside of the print. Amount and placement of pressure affects texture and anomalies.
