Linocut

Variant woodcut printmaking technique where linoleum sheet is used to act as the relief surface. The surface is then cut into a V-shaped gouge or chisel design so the raised areas represent a mirror image(reversal) to show printed parts. A roller is used to link the sheet which is then impressed to fabric or paper. A press or hand can be used to do the actual printing.

C-Print

Also known as Chromogenic or C type print. A print that's made from slide or color negative exposed to chromogenic paper containing three emulsion layers sensitized to non similar primary colors. Once the image is exposed, it is dipped into a chemical bath for each layer to react towards the chemical so as to create an image.

Painting

Painting is the process of applying media to a surface, using a tool such as a brush. The term refers to both the action and the resulting object. Artists use many tools to paint, such as brushes, airbrushes, palette knives, sponges or fingers and hands.
