All by hand

Tuesday, May 9th, 2017

These beautiful native bird artworks from Liz Abbott Art are made by hand at every step of their creation.

lizabbottart2 blog

First Liz hand-carves woodblocks, and then she inks them up with oil-based ink, using a hand roller or brayer. The inked image is impressed with a hand-operated printing press on to textured paper, hand made from New Zealand flax (harakeke).

Finally, Liz hand colours each woodcut with watercolour – making every print a unique and original work of art.
