Ukiyo-E printing on a Vandercook proofing press- a quick runthrough from Mark Herschede on Vimeo.


The papermakers

Julio, if you want to add a link to an outside image (not one of our own uploaded images), and have the image show in the entry, then don't use the 'rich text' editor. You have to do it manually ... use the 'HTML Mode' button in the toolset above ...

Ukiyoe-Printing using a Vandercook Press


Printmaker Mark Herschede:

"A brief runthrough of the process I'm using right now to make a bank of images using woodcuts. By using tools which are not normally associated with one another, I've been working towards experimenting with mixing processes. Currently I'm researching the technical aspects of printing water based, japanese style woodblock printing on a vandercook through testing and manipulation of the materials involved."
"It is my hope to be scoffed at by Japanese moku-hanga printers and letterpress typesetting nerds alike. Please! Feel free to insult my experiments! (Or offer constructive criticism ;-) )! Get angry at my usage of a type proving press to print 'cuts'; become enraged at my seemingly smashing attempts at printing lovingly hand-inked blocks!"

Paul Binnie - latest print "Inazuma" (Lightning)

| 1 Comment

From Blue Rim gallery in London:

Paul Binnie, May 2010, (New release)
Oban, 66 x 32 cm. Edition of 40.

'Inazuma' means Lightning, but is a literary term that brings ideas of fertilising the fields derived from ancient poetry. The large format of this print gives a dramatic feeling of the verticality of the bolt of lightning as it crackles between dark clouds and rain to earth.

Within the edition of 40, there are 14 different printings, including 3 printings of solid black overlaid to achieve a deep, opaque darkness in the heaviest clouds.

To see a vast collection of Paul Binnie's prints at Blue Rim Gallery visit this link.

Watch the making of "Samoan Skin". Working in the eStudio Editions studio printer Paul Smith with artist Dimitri Lihachov describe the process of making a "colloblock" print.
