Art projects with Marie-Hélène Comeau - Printing

Relief printing.  Printmaking process where protruding surface faces of the matrix (printing plate) are inked; recessed areas are ink free. Printing the image is therefore a relatively simple matter of inking the face of the matrix and bringing it in firm contact with the paper. A printing-press is not needed as the back of the paper can be rubbed.
