If you’re carving lino all day here’s a top tip. Wrap masking tape round the tool where your finger rests. If you wind it round several times you get a nice soft pad. This will prevent you getting blisters.
This blog is all about linocuts. It features work by myself and other linocut artists from around the world. I also post "how-to" guides to linocut techniques, equipment and tools and other linocut-related subjects such as workshops, exhibitions and books. I welcome your comments and hope you enjoy reading.
