Yinepu block print by sapphirelotus Yinepu block print by sapphirelotus
Block print(I think that's the correct term...carve it out and rub ink on the block and press paper on it?) of Yinepu from art. I had to take a picture because it was too big - I haven't cropped the paper yet. I'm really happy with how this one turned out. One of the prints is promised to a Yinepu kid I know that's a friend of mine :D

I had another one that was absolutely gorgeous - that color of blue on black, with lapis blue and dark purple marbled over it. Unfortunately, somebody dripped white paint on it and ruined it. I was really upset :( I'm going to try and redo it tomorrow.

wood or linoleum? the term is "wood cut" or "lino cut". printmakers try to be specific since there are many mediums.

The blue colour reminds me of the Egyptian blue faience pottery...:Luv:

Very nice! I really love the color you used for this. Every think about making stamps and selling them? There really are not many Egyptian rubber stamps out there! And I think you would find there is a market for them. Just an idea!

Well, I don't know about stamps, but once I get a steady cash-flow I was seriously considering getting some nice paper and matting(sp?) them, selling the prints at a fair or something. However, I'd have no idea what to price them.

Thanks for the fav and comment :D

Well it's not spendy to make them and you can use all kinds of thing to make stamp blocks. Check out a craft store near you. Pricing things is very hard, I as well have a big problem with that when trying to price my jewelry.

Your welcome!

ahh it stopped me halfway through. >_< Anyways, I was going to say, it was probably something only I noticed but I also thought it looked better with the black because I had carved out the eye-markings and they're supposed to be black. it drove me up the wall when they were white or whatever.

Thanks for the comment! :D

Thank you!

Yeah, the black prints looked SO much better than the prints on the white paper. I'm not entirely sure why except that maybe black and blue are both Yinepu colors or something?
