I experienced my first time engraving, it’s a difficult technique but also really fascinating. Linoleum is a soft material made of oil linseed, pine rosin, ground cork dust, wood flour and jute canvas. In a small mesure linoleum can be used to engrave drawings like cards. That is what I made: customized Christmas cards. As a novice I liked so much the technique that I bought all the tools that I needed for this type of work and I’m making engravings myself at home, also using the Litography technique to paint the cards.
