Flexographic Portraits

Doug and I have been working on this. We tried some lithographic experiments (and a few other things).

The relief printing is really coming forward.

This is really fun, if you want to try the inking process, poke by one of the hack613 meetups.




Here are a couple in the pipe.

Here’s a puddy cat.

He’s from Vancouver. I carved out three lino plates for three colors, black and two shades of grey. This is a little more work than it looks like since you need to process the image in a way that it maximized with just three colors.

I made sure there was no overlap between the plates…

I aligned the plates by taping a fixture to the table for the plates and also taping the paper.

You can see the concept in the process pictures further down.


Here are some pictures form the process.
