Vocabulary 15Block Printing

An original print is a fine art process that produces multiples. An original print is not a copy or a reproduction. Each print is an original – created and hand pulled by the artist.

Relief Printmaking

  • A relief print is an image created by a printmaking process, such as woodcut, where the areas of the matrix (plate or block) that are to show printed with color are on the original surface; the parts of the matrix that are to be blank (white or the color of the paper) having been cut away, or otherwise removed.

  • A brayer is a small hand roller, typically used in printmaking techniques to spread ink. They can be made of rubber, sponge, or acrylic and come in a variety of hardnesses for different applications.


Edition l.jpg
Edition

  • In printmaking, an edition is a number of prints struck from one plate, usually at the same point in time. Most modern artists produce only limited editions, normally signed by the artist in pencil, and numbered as say 67/100 to show the unique number of that impression and the total edition size.

As you can see in the example the numbers in gray are what you would write on each of your works as you pull them. When you get to 100/100 you would not make any more. Some artist even destroy the block to assure that no more will be printed.
