blotto painting

A painting made by applying tempera paint onto one side of a sheet of paper, then folding the paper and pressing the two sides together.


A printing technique that involves carving text in relief upon a wooden block. When inked, the impression is transferred to paper. The oldest known printed works were produced by this method in Japan and China during the 8th and 9th centuries. This method of wood-block printing appeared in Europe in the 14th century and eventually inspired Johannes Gutenberg to create type pieces out of metal.

This is perfect for storing the Distress & Distress Oxide Ink pads. I have a WORD document where I made a table of the ink pad colors, then printed it out on a sheet of label paper. I cut the individual color blocks out and brushed with the color named, then attached the label to the ink pad. I can see the color of the ink at a glance.

The book seems to contain just about all the information I need. There seems to have been a lot of thought in presenting the information and designing the format. I really liked the book. I would like to see other books by this author.
