Experimenting with a laser cutter, Goldie Hawn, some printer’s ink and an idea for a dumb Valentine’s Day card.
Turning the original image into a B&W posterised image.
Converting the image into linework and cleaning it up a little.
Adding the text and cutting lines ready for laser cutting.
Setting up the image so the laser cutting software can interpret it.
Laser cutting the first layer.
Laser cutting the 4th time to create the necessary depth for woodcut printing without scorching.
Final woodcut and the inking tools.
Applying the ink to the woodcut.
Putting the paper on and rubbing the image down with a spoon.
Final result.
The benefit of this is that each print is slightly different and has its own character. Many prints can then be made this way.
