The proposed workshop will last an entire day, at the morning the activity will start with engraving on wood or linoleum of a subject, a simple drawing. The preparation of the design will have to take account of the material of which will be etched, while the engraving of metal can be realized with very subtle signs, one on wooden or linoleum will of the strongest signs. In addition, the matrix should be realized considering the fact that in printing the image will be reflected, for which the written will have to be realized on the contrary! After the realization of the design and of the matrix, in the afternoon you can go to the print on paper (postcard size) with the press or by hand with the baren, following a Japanese technique.
If one wants to realize an image in multiple colors, they must be realized different matrices, one for each color, that will print one after the other, taking into account the ink drying times between one color and the other! The reproduction of an image and an engraved text can be printed with different colors and then have the array of colors of the same subject.
With this technique you can also create monograms, logos, stamps who may have a very personal characterization to be played along with the signature, on different media.
