A look at my process...
Hello there I'm Bert
Meet my best friend Bert the cockatoo.
This is how Bert began! In my printing studio, I prepared a plate, which is the square of the cardboard I drew the design on. You can see the tools I used for cutting. Time to give Bert some glued feathers on his head. The plate was then lacquered and left to dry with several coats applied and left to thoroughly dry.
Showing Bert below after he has been inked and then put
through the printing press.
Some images show how each time the plate is pressed the colour intensity slowly reduces
