Description

Reductive printmaking stages demonstrated through styrofoam.

eductive R PrintMaking a basic introduction

With reductive printmaking, the artist creates a composition with layered colours from the same block.

For each colour pass, the artist removes material from the block. Each colour is printed on top of the previous and therefore, the block gets reduced. To understand this better, it will be demonstrated on a piece of foam using a ball point pen. stage 1 stage 2 stage 3

First, you need to consider what you want to be white on your print. In this example, it will be the blue pen lines as it will become the negative space. You should also remember that your image will come out mirrored!

The styrofoam is inked and printed. With each new layer, the block will need to be washed.

Now, additional areas will be carved away. This area will now remain yellow.

The styrofoam is inked and printed again. You also need to register (align) your print correctly on top of the previous print. Again, the block will need to be washed.

Additional areas will be carved away again to create a third layer of colour.

Again register (align) your print correctly on top of the previous print. Here is the final composition.

Here you can review the stages again, with their individual prints.
