printing on ply

I've been playing around with printing on different materials and this is my attempt at printing on board, 4mm ply to be precise. I whitewashed the board, hand-painted the flag and then distressed it a little. I then printed my "In the Frame" lino block with the usual black relief print ink. I distressed it a little more and sealed it with a water-based glaze tinted with a little brown drawing ink. I would love to know what you think.

Car-i-bou-oo


OH wanted the Caribou to have the northern lights as a backdrop but I wanted to keep it plain white. So I used some of the colours seen in the aurora borealis on the body instead. It was tricky to ink-up selective areas with the different colours and then to merge them in, but I am quite happy with some of them.

 I then used the inks up on this. 

Reminds me of tie-dyed tassel skirts and the whiff of patchcouli oil!

Caribou

My OH convinced me that reindeer are old hat and their cousins the caribou are pulling the sleigh this Christmas (nothing to do with being a Pixies fan then, eh?). Admittedly caribou have fancier headgear than their Northern European kin so i decided to give it a go. 
Not sure its quite there yet but i'll roll out some ink tonight and see what comes up.

mushrooms

Here is my contribution to the Facteur 10 Print and Book Exchange.




I wanted to produce a fairly intimate print to reflect the small size required by the brief












Just need to get the eleven prints packaged up and in the post!
