Artist Sasha Compton will take you through a lino printing tutorial inspired by Botticelli Shells.

Art Session

//

5 mins

This Tutorial is a little more specialised so you will need some of the following  supplies for this tutorial. 


Things you need for Sasha's Session

  • Shell (or object)
  • Pencil (HB)
  • Rubber/Eraser
  • Tracing paper - A few sheets 
  • Masking tape
  • Scissors
  • Ruler (in case you want to measure) 

More specialised

Sasha suggests Essdee for basic and Jackson's Art Supplies for higher quality


Note: Advise 15+ Due to Lino gouge - Important carve away from the body, please be careful with the gouge!  

Younger Kids Option: There is also an Essdee Ready Made Kit that uses materials like foam and a pencil for engraving that are safe / kid friendly. The process would then still be quite similar to my tutorial. 

Fun Alternative: Potato Printing can be another fun thing to experiment in place of the Soft Cut Lino with but note that tracing paper isn't needed as the moisture from the potato won't allow the drawing to transfer in the same way, in the end you'll have a different aesthetic. Potato Printing is probably better for creating a repeat pattern.
