Process of making woodcut print

Woodcut board.

This is the process of a woodcut type 1 (using rulo). This design comprises three main colors: white, light hydrangea and black. After I redrew the design onto the wooden board, I started carving out the white area of the bird and the waves. Then, I would rolled a layer of ink on the carved board’s surface and put it upside down, below it laid a sheet of paper. Next, it was rolled out by a rulo pressing the fresh ink spread onto the paper.

Second layer was undergone the same process and the first layer was carved out to achieve the final look.

Finishing stage: framing.

Although the paint came out does not even on the traditional paper, due to the natural texture of the paper, it still looked great when I put it in a nice frame.
