almost there... New 2015 Christmas Rubber Stamp Design

09 September, 2015

Almost finished a new lino cut for Christmas. I had not attempted a nativity scene yet, so I decided it had to be done. I'm always a bit nervous of depicting people, animals and pattern are much more my comfort zone. A nice big piece of Japanese lino is a good challenge and quite therapeutic really.

I start by sketching it out on paper then I transferred it to the lino using carbon paper. When the lino cutting is all complete I will do a black and white print, scan the print and make it into a negative so it can be made into stamps. Its always a bit of trial and error, as per usual I have crammed a bit to much fine detail into this design but with a bit of adjustment in photoshop I can make sure it will work well as a stamp design.
