Using Pearl Ex Metallic Pigments to Enhance Linocuts
Handprinted

We found we needed to use quite a lot of Pearl Ex to build up a colour strong enough for a print (twice the quantity in the above photo to achieve the ink in the below photo). However, the colour was lovely and it gave a subtle sheen. The pri ..read more

Hi, I’m Ariana - a pattern designer and printmaker from leafy Sheffield. I create joyful patterns and illustrations, which are particularly inspired by 20th century design, and I produce my own range of stationery and homewares.     Describe your printmaking process. Screen printing on paper is my main focus; it suits me as I tend to design using a limited palette of 2 or 3 colours and I love the dense, powdery finish of the inks. Mixing colours is a big part of the process for me - I spent weeks perfecting my ideal cornflower blue! I’m also developing my lino printing practice ..read more
