Paint 'Botticelli Shells'

Artist Sasha Compton will take you through a lino printing tutorial inspired by Botticelli and the wonderful seaside.

Art Session

//
45 mins

Note: Advise 15+ Due to Lino gouge - Important carve away from the body, please be careful with the gouge!  

You will need the following supplies for this tutorial:

Sasha suggests the following art suppliers  - Essdee for basic and Jackson's Art Supplies for higher quality. Links are attached below. 

Younger Kids Option:

There is also an Essdee Ready Made Kit that uses materials like foam and a pencil for engraving that are safe / kid friendly. The process would then still be quite similar to my tutorial. 

 

Fun Alternative: 

Potato Printing can be another fun thing to experiment in place of the Soft Cut Lino with but note that tracing paper isn't needed as the moisture from the potato won't allow the drawing to transfer in the same way, in the end you'll have a different aesthetic. Potato Printing is probably better for creating a repeat pattern.
