Frizzle Hen print


Little frizzle hen (that is their actual name - these are chickens with an unusual genetic mutation which causes their feathers to be reticulated and curve outwards)

Paper: 15 x 15 cm, warm white Somerset Satin paper

Print: approx. size 11.5 x 10.5 cm, black Cranfield Caligo ink

This print is a Linocut.
To make a linocut print, the design is carved into a traditional linoleum plate, in reverse, so that it will print the correct way round. The linoleum plate is then inkedup, paper is carefully placed on top, and it is put into one of my two Victorian book presses. The areas which were carved away will appearwhite on the print, and only the raised surfaces will have left
an impression.
