Linoleum cut as well as wood cut offers the capacity to explore different color versions starting from the same engraved block. Why so? Because this technique is base on the “positive and negative ” principe, traditionally in the Westerner world the plate were printed using black only [ there were few rare exceptions], until the sophisticated Japanese artists show us differently. From this historical fact on all the traditional printing techniques adoptes color [ etching, lithograph, silkscreen…] The color process is more complex than the B & W alone, and as a consequence, requires color testing called proofing.

Three major fundamental components come into play for each printed color used: the thickness of the printing ink applied on top of the relief cut block, the quantity of pressure applied by the printing press, the difference [ or quality ] of the paper use … aside, from this factors it can be added: the importance of the humidity in the air and the temperature of the printing room, while good day light is a must for accuracy on color nuances – neon light simply can kill your work. If you are concern on saving time or are in a rush, do not even try to be involve with this process!!!
