This is an experiment to see if I can use a sheet of Sintra PVC 3mm 1/8 inch foam board as a printing plate. I was surprised how well it worked. I curved it with standard lino cutting tools. It is fairly easy to cut and holds detail as well as linoleum. It looks a lot like battleship gray linoleum, but it is a lot cheaper. I think I paid around $1.50 for a 12×12 inch sheet. Linoleum would cost around $5.00. Here’s what the carved plate looks like.
I printed the plate by hand using a baren. I printed on inkjet paper with water soluble printing ink. Each image is 2.3×2.8 inches (60×72 mm).
