Printmaking Self- Portrait
Materials we used;
-rubber carving board
First. Choose a photo of you and print it in black and white. The size should be A4.
Second. Using carving paper, trace the photo into the blank A4 paper.
Third. Outline the photo by using a marker, and color the spaces that you are going to leave (the part you did not color will be the part that will be cut out).
Fourth. After coloring the picture in A4, transfer it to the tracing paper.
Fifth. After tracing, again trace it to the rubber carving board.
Sixth. First, use the thin roller to carve the small white parts. Then use think rollers to carve the large areas.
Seventh. Think of the background, then start carving background
Eight. Get ready for printing (you need stamp, black ink, newspaper, magazines, board)
Ninth. Use the roller to roll the black ink, then roll the roller into the rubber carving board.
Tenth. Put the magazine on top of the rubber carving board and use stamp to make it stick.
Eleventh. Dry the prints you made :)
the background of the magazine is the picture of a lip. So it looks like gradation (red-black).
This is the white background, because it shows my print clearly :)
This is the piece I like because the background seems like polka dot.
