I made another version of the face, to see how it looks as I cut away bit by bit. This time I used the easycut rubbery stuff which I am not too fond of but I used the back of an old print, so It is useful from that point of view.
I drew straight onto the rubber with a felt pen, aiming for more of a line effect this time using broad cutters.
A series of prints cutting the block more each time, printing as I go.
Printing With Paper Additions
Once you have your block you can print it in any colour, on almost anything and add different papers and materials.
The red paper additions here are too dark and perhaps interfere with how you read the image.. sometimes that is useful and it was worth a go.
Printed on some old sheet music with red strips which I then took off. They left gaps which changed the image again.
Printed with an additional piece of torn grey paper.
The possibilities are endless!
