Abstract

Inspired by 16th century multi colour Chiaroscuro Woodblock Prints, we have sought to develop methods to recreate blocks from existing onscreen images or from printed facsimiles, by measuring colours and colour separation methods to create individual layers. We used different methods to create printing blocks including additive layer printing, CNC milling, laser cutting. The resulting prints have involved and demonstrated a trade off between the parameters and limitations of each of the processes, tools and materials, for example: the ability to maintain detail and clean edges, versus speed or machining cost.
