Reduction Butterflies

1 Comment

I never posted the process for this print, so here it is.

This is a reduction print, which means each color is carved away to KEEP that color. First you carve out all the whites then print the lightest color first. You run your whole edition in that one color before carving out the second color.

Then you carve away everywhere you want to KEEP that first lightest color. Then print your edition, and so on, until your last color. Your block is left with the last color you printed, so you can’t replicate that print anymore, which makes it SPECIAL! That edition of 16 or however many is the only edition in existence!
