How Fine Art Printing Is Done.
Fine art printing has been in existence for more than we can remember and it was being done long before any technology was invented. The art pieces of fine arts have been done by art masters and others have been made by well-known artists that have put a mark in the art world. The pieces of fine art take time and concentration to come out as successful pieces and there are failures behind every success.
There are four well known methods in which fine art is made and they include; planography, screen printing, relief and intaglio. These methods have been in use for more than five decades and they are still being used to produce the fine art pieces. The way each of the above method is explained below.
The method that has been in existence the longest is the relief and was used to make some of the first major pieces. The person doing the art uses a sharp cutting object to cut out the piece of material they want to use in making the art piece. The pieces of wood to be used were engraved with knives to get the desired shapes protruding out. The pieces would then place in ink and printed on the desired surface, either paper or canvas. The process would involve application of pressure for even application of the ink on the paper. The wood and paper are separated after some time when the paper has dried up to prevent tearing.

The paint is then applied with care not to pass through the layer of oil. The dried art is then pulled off the rock and the art work is ready.

The piece of wood with the print side protruding is placed in ink and then pressed against the surface where the art is to be printed on. Paper and cloth are the most used surfaces and any other surface that can hold the ink.
