Printmaking is one of the easiest ways to make creative, abstract paintings without being an excellent drawer. I successfully tested two printmaking techniques, linoleum prints and “random items” (links). Today I am going to use a simple potato and a knife to print a postcard. I used to do this before as a little child, when I wanted to prepare some birthday presents for my parents. This only demonstrates how easy this printmaking technique is. In my easy step by step approach, I show you how to get the best results.
