Sweet Dream: Print Making
Find inspiration from your photos or
Blend some color you like on a glass surface. Use a roller to smooth the color, then press and roll on the carving block.
Draw on a piece of tracing paper with a pencil. Trace your drawing on a carving block with a layer of carbon paper under the tracing paper.
Carve the areas you want to be white with your carving knife kit.
Put a piece of paper on the carving block. Add a rubber pad on top. It makes the paper stay tight with the block. Adjust to a suitable height and apply pressure, so that the block can go through the etching press roller. Roll the whole block to the other side of the roller for a "test print".
Carve the block again to make small adjustments on image details. Try to play with different colors and layers. I used yellow and pink to create a sweet and sugary feeling.
