Process for the Lesson
KNMA urges art lovers to throw out the rules, pick up crayons, sketch pens, colored pens, pencil colors or even watercolors to create unique compositions to enjoy and share with family and friends.
– Let’s start, first lay your tracing paper over your design and tape down to secure.
– Now outline your design with pencil.
– Turn the tracing paper over on the Lino sheet so the pencil marks face down.
– Scribble over the traced design to transfer.
– Go over the line using marker to ensure the design doesn’t smudge when cutting the Lino.
– Cut around the edges of your design using smallest V-shape cutting blade.
– Use wider U-shape cutting blade to cut out the larger areas of white space.
– To ink, take a small amount of ink on flat smooth surface (preferably glass).
– Start rolling with the help of roller/brayer, until u get a smooth velvety texture.
– Roll out onto design layers ensuring all parts of the design are covered.
– Take your paper, and gently place it over your inked Lino sheet.
– Press down using burnishing tool or back of the spoon in circular motions.
– Gently peel your paper and leave it to dry.
– Its ready!!
