This is a versatile way to create prints by applying an image which has been created using the vinyl cutter which is situated in the 3DWorkshop. The self adhesive vinyl images are laid onto sheets of PVC and rolled to ensure a good adhesion and expel any air bubbles. The plates can then be rolled-up to be printed as relief prints or they can be inked and wiped to be printed as intaglio prints. The examples here have been inked with the tri-chromatic colours (yellow, magenta and cyan) and over-printed on damp paper or silk and then passed through the etching press.
