A HEART OF GOLD LINO & PEACE OF MIND by Susan Fae Haglund
These are my two linocut prints that I’ve added a bit of a twist to. A Heart of Gold is printed with oil based ink, then the gold heart or the top print is water soluble based ink printed (and aligned) onto velum.
Varied Printing techniques; one layered paper the other two lino blocks printed on the same paper. Peace of Mind (below) demonstrates two lino blocks on one paper, with two different inks.
There are two options in this demonstration on framing a layered print. One is to attach the velum to the Stonehenge paper and the other is to create a space between the bottom & top print.
The print without the spacer between the layers is sharper and easier to read, but then to create that 3D illusion with the spacer between the two prints may soften the writing (title & signature) but pops the PEACE sign and the GOLD HEART. These prints were framed with; linen fabric mats, museum glass and Roma moulding.
