Use to denote nudity/mature subject matter Prints on Marbled paper

Original print and it's varients, mixed media

"Basking" 6 x 8 print on 8 x 10 stonehenge:

Open edition, black ink on white paper

VE#A, same dimensions:

VE#A is on hand-marbled paper.


VE#B, Same dimensions, on hand-marbled paper


VE#C, Same dimensions, on hand-marbled paper


VE#D, Same dimensions, on hand-marbled paper.

This figure came from the Figure forum; it's part of this month's September challenge. I really think that doing figures in Lino is really a challenge, and one I'm going to be playing with more. It's good to be back printing again, though

Re: Prints on Marbled paper

You are really pushing your horizons Kitten. Excellent job
The prints came out nice and clean. I love the black and white version and the prints on the marbled paper turned out really well.

Re: Prints on Marbled paper

I like the 3rd and 4th ones. Something about the colors You did a great job on the cutting, Caroline. I am glad that you are using your marbled paper to print on. It gives it so much punch!

Re: Prints on Marbled paper

I don't know much about print making but can you marble the ink and print marbled ink on plain paper? Just a thought for the queen of marble.

Re: Prints on Marbled paper

I agree about the difficultly of cutting the figure in lino but I like contrast of the bold, angular lines of the figure here against the soft, sensual patterns of the marbled paper. Me thinks you are on to something here. Keep going !

Penny- marbling the inks too ???? Yikes, you are a task master ! ( Hmmm, interesting concept tho.. )

Re: Prints on Marbled paper

Thank you all for your kind comments...

As for marbling the pigment as well, you might try looking at the thread I started on overmarbling. That's a concept I've been playing with as well, and of course, I can always use a rainbow roll (multuple coloured inks) on the marbled paper to achieve a secondary effect. What could be interesting here is to get some warm background tones and sharp cool inks, or vice versa.

As the print-making ink is *much* thicker than the acrylic mordant, This could really have some fantastic results. Also, I think it could be interesting to do some background stencilling, marble, and *then* do a print over it. Sort of a multiple collage type item.

Thanks for the ideas - I'm working on a book now using some marbled paper

Re: Prints on Marbled paper

It must be tremendously difficult to get such a good clean print from lino. I love the way it looks on the red. I had to get up from the computer for something and when saw it from a distance it looks terrific. Keep up the good work.
