Three tutorials in one lesson. Unconventional printmaking techniques that are easily done in a home setting. Minimum art supplies required - you, probably, have it all in your household already... Well... maybe get a pint of printing ink...

The idea behind any printmaking process is to create a surface (printing plate or block) with some sort of a relief (either raised relief or sunken relief). In this tutorial you are going use common household items to create these reliefs. I encourage you to experiment and have fun with it! I will guide you through some steps, give suggestions, show examples.

This lesson has 3 tutorials. It gives you a variety of techniques to choose from and to try. These are the simple techniques you can use for creating a fine art piece, a greeting card or add to your scrap booking options. You might even come up with your own techniques after you complete this lesson.
