DIY Printmaking techniques – #1 Linoleum prints

Allgemein, Paintings, Printmaking

You are not satisfied with your drawing skills? In the next three blog posts I would like to introduce three printmaking techniques to you that makes your drawing skills irrelevant. I wouldn’t consider myself as a good drawer. It takes me a while to come to a drawing-result that is satisfying my expectations. I really envy the artists, who make a perfect drawing in three minutes. But with printmaking techniques you and I can be as fast as a professional drawer.

The first technique that I would like to show you is “Linoleum Printing”:

I already published a DIY step by step guide on this:BRING SUMMER TO YOUR HOME – #5 DIY FLAMINGO PRINT.


DIY Printmaking – Linoleum step by step

What I really love about linoleum-prints is that you can create a lasting stamp that you can use whenever you feel like it. Just follow the seven steps below to get the best results:

  1. Find a nice motive on Google pictures.
  2. Print a motive with clear contours (e.g. black-and-white pictures).
  3. Cut out the motive.
  4. Use double-sided tape to attach the motive to the linoleum block.
  5. Cut along the motive with a linoleum cutting tool.
  6. Remove the outer linoleum layers and the motive.
  7. Attach a small handle on the backside of the linoleum block (e.g. a piece of wood).
