Day of the Dead linocut

Patrick Murillo Featured News, mantastic crafts

My wife, Kathy, just recently stumbled upon the art of print making using linoleum squares and some wood carving knives. It’s called block printing or lino cuts. She was so thrilled with the technique that she carved a whole bunch, running in and out of the art room waving her newly pressed prints like a kid. She bugged me to try it but I’m the kind of guy that’s kinda reluctant to be pushed to do something, especially if its a new technique. But I did it today and there was a kind of therapeutic experience carving into the relatively easy lino board, and the prints have such a nostalgic look to them. You got to try it!!  This was  a fun and definitely MANTASTIC. Kathy said she is going to share the directions on her blog later this week. Stay tuned.
