Styrofoam Printing


I like repeat patterns and particularly in combination with the slightly uneven, graininess of block prints.  I had in mind Christmas but somehow I arrived at Christmas Roses. Not really recognisably Christmas. I was trying to achieve the snowflake feel. Styrofoam is used a lot in packaging. The ink I use HERE is linseed based and I clean up afterwards using vegetable oil. No solvents. The ink is really good, great colour and stays tacky. I use it a lot to do mono printing.
