'Tibetian' Linoprint on Sunn Hemp
Paper dimensions: 60cm x 40cm
Print dimensions: 55cm x 32.5cm
A hand crafted block print in oil-based Black ink on 90gsm Sunn Hemp Paper made from recycled fibres.
Traditional Islamic paper from North India made from a mix of raw sunn hemp fibre and recycled sunn hemp. Handmade on a chapri, a grass stem screen, the impression of the screen is visible on the sheet as a laid pattern. Sheets are dried on a plaster wall and surface sized with wheat starch. The paper is pressed between zinc sheets to make the smooth surface.
There are 10 misprints available. They are down to variations in the grey as I experimented with shades during early printing. There are also some underinked areas in some and a few ink marks.
It is unfortunately not possible to pick a specific print. Please see images for examples.
Each print is covered in acid free tissue paper to protect against moisture, and wrapped in Kraft Brown paper to ensure safe transit. Prints are placed in a cardboard tube for the safest transit.
Prints are sent via Signed For® 1st Class for UK Orders or sent via International Tracked & Signed for International orders, or Tracked International if signed is not available in your country.
Each print is made from an individual inking and this paper is handmade and has a textured surface, so slight pressure and texture variation can occur. Each piece of paper is handmade and hand cut individually, so small size variations of paper can occur in each print, +\- 1-2cm.
