Steps

  • Step 1
    With a permanent marker, draw a design on to a 4x6" Soft-Kut Printing Block. Consider that your design will be cut into different sections, each printed with a different color of ink.
  • Step 2
    Use an X-Acto Knife to cut the design into the different color sections of the print.
  • Step 3
    Using the Linozips, carve out the design from the Soft-Kut block.
  • Step 4
    In separate mixing trays, roll out different colors of ink. In this example, there are three.
  • Step 5
    Ink each section a different color. Before the ink dries, put the pieces together, inked sides up.
  • Step 6
    Using a rubbing stick, print your design onto a piece of construction paper.
  • Step 7
    The color of the paper becomes the fourth color in your print; in this example it is the fish body.
  • Optional Tip 1
    Make a stamp print by printing the parts separately.
