This thrush in bamboo is the first time I have used Japanese ply after always using Lino, I very much enjoyed using the ply, it takes a little more time to produce a cut but you can get much more detail.
This is a limited edition print of 30, a four colour reduction, I have then finished it with a embossed design on to 300gsm cotton paper. Embossing the paper has become a real feature of my work, and even though it is another process to finish the print I think it gives a subtle depth to my work and this makes my work stand out from the rest. I have really mastered the technique after several years and I really enjoy this finishing process.
Please note due to the printing process each print will be slightly different, with minor colour variations. This means that each print is truly unique.
