Tibi, another thing I have used with multiple blocks is a template.
I would suggest foam board. You could cut an area the size of your
block, put your block in the space and turn your paper for each
printing. You could also turn the template, might work???

Hi All,

Last night I watched Clouzot's The Mystery of Picasso (many of you may have
already seen it). Dated and eternal at the same time, this wonderful film
shows Picasso painting canvases both in real time and in time-lapse
photography.

Now, you may ask what has this to do with printing...
While some of us enjoy making prints from photos, others of us prefer a more
mental metamorphosis of an image. The paintings seen towards the end of the
film reveal an artist making and changing and changing and changing his
image. I was fascinated.

It surely does.... Picasso did a great deal of printmaking.
The Picasso Art Musee in Paris has a extraordinary collection
of his prints. I was amazed to see the steps he took to arrive
and imagery. It was so neat because there were numerous
examples that showed the progression of prints and how
they evolved. As I call it, he employed a great amount of
I wonder what if and by so doing, his prints took on an
interesting aspect.
It is a Museum worthy of a trip to Paris. We planned a
morning for the visit and finished at closing time.
Certainly a highlite of our visits France and Paris.

Regards
Graham
P.S. Oh, did I mentions not to miss the Musee Marmottan
http://www.marmottan.com/ equally fabulous.

Subject: Saint Francis
Posted by: Georgina


This is a 'final' version of the Saint Francis relief print. I rolled the paper with gold acrylic, printed with black water based ink, then over printed with graphics oil based (with some extender) . I did this so I could do it all in one day, usually I prefer oil based ink but I wanted to acheive something quickly!
