This swap is for a printmaking themed ATC series for printmaking artists. Sorry, no prefab stamps please, all blocks/stamps or plates must be handcarved/etched & designed by each participating artist.
Printing may include but, does not exclude, rubber or linoleum, plastic, metal, wood, or foam. Use waterproof/permanent inks or protective fixative/seal for water soluble inks (reminder, these must withstand postal delivery to your partners). You may like to illustrate, paint, or color your postcards & block prints to enhance the front & backside of the cards (depending on the printing method you choose to use & artistic preference), freedom of expression, creativity, technique, & style is up to the artist (sender).
For this swap you are to create & design a printmaking design for 2 ATCs. The design direction & print is the artist's (sender's) choice. Make something you would be proud to trade, add to your mail art collection, or matte & frame, this is for 2 ATCs, 1 ATC per partner. Note: These projects may be made from the same stencil, block, plate, etc. These may be identical or you may like to decorate these differently, different colors, you may like to add acrylic painting, ink wash, watercolored background, or add illustrations, etc. etc. Freedom of creativity is up to each artist (sender).
Newbies with well filled out profiles are welcome. Providing links to your work is encouraged for newbies & seasoned swappers. 4.9 or higher are welcome, no unexplained 3s or 1s, I will be checking profiles before the swap begins. I will angel if the need arises.
Check in for updates for future printmaking swaps, I shall also be providing links to future printmaking themed swaps in description section in the future.
