In this course, you will create a three-color block print of a botanical subject using a linoleum type plate. This course will take you through the process of creating a print using the reduction block printing method in which part of the plate is carved away then printed, more of the plate is carved away and printed and so on working from the lightest color to the darkest. You will also learn how registration works when using multiple colors.
