Summary of my Lino Print
Making the Lino Print was harder than I expected it to be! I learnt how to use the Lino Cutters properly, (All though I did cut myself once, the very first time...!) I learnt how to properly cut the lino, using different strokes to give shape. While cutting my portrait out, I made sure that I left places un-cut around my face, to show positive and negative areas. If I were to do another Lino Print again,I would cut my hair out better, using a smaller blade, and add more finer strokes to better show which way my hair goes.  I would also try and leave the frame of my print clean, because it has ink all over it.
