Printmaking Processes: Relief

Printmaking Processes: Relief Tube. Duration : 4.55 Mins.

The artist carves the image on a block of wood or linoleum, cutting away some areas and leaving others raised (in relief). Ink is applied with a roller, which contacts only the raised areas, leaving the cutaway parts uninked. The block can be printed by hand or on a printing press.
