Relief printing

I've gathered together some materials with interesting textures and surfaces, and want to try out printing them.




I'm pleased with some of the prints, and want to work on them further. I am going to try to increase the scale of the print, removing it from being a direct tracing or rubbing of the surface, and will also play with layering images. I'm going to screen print the enlarged image onto different surfaces and see where it takes me.



Although the biscuits do take the ink which I roll over the surface, it has not been possible to get a good print, probably because not enough pressure can be placed on it for the ink to be in good contact with the paper, and for the biscuit to remain intact.
