Here is the first step: after drawing the illustration, we copy it on the gum plate using a tracer paper.
After copying our ilustration on the vinyl block, we use indian ink to color in black the areas that won’t be carved. They will receive the paint and will be printed on the paper. So in order to make those areas stand out, we remove all blue areas. The vinyl block is very soft so it’s really easy to cut!
We use a sponge to cover the plate with color (Schmincke aqua Linoldruck). 
 
 
Then we place the paper on top of it and press with a spoon.
And it’s done: the card is printed!
