Printmaking: Basic Tech (Flores)

( 25:05 )

Peggy Flores explains and demonstrates relief printing by using flat cardboard, styrofoam, and string which are glued onto cardboard, painted, and inked. She also carves on vinyl blocks to create images which she then prints. The film also demonstrates a variety of simple tools such as brayers, carving tools, and bench hooks. Many student prints are also shown.
