About

I will be producing 100 Limited Edition Tiki Idol Surf Fin Art Linocut Prints.

As I'm creating this piece especially for this project, I can't show you exactly what the finished product will look like (as I haven't carved or printed it yet), but I have produced the digital design that I will use as the template, which you can see below.

As I'm not able to show you the finished Tiki Idol Fin linocut print, I thought I'd include images of my last linocut design, the Twisted Tentacles Fin, so that you can see what the original digital design looked like, and how the final linocut looks. That way, you can hopefully get a good impression of how the Tiki Idol Fin will turn out when it's cut and printed. 

If you watch the video on this page, it will also show you the full process of how I turn my original designs into a finished surf fin art linocut print.

As you can see as, the Twisted Tentacles Surf Fin Art Print has been printed on Ivory White paper and this will be the same for the Tiki Idol Fin linocut print that you will receive. 

The Tiki Idol Fin will be printed using Black Cranfield Caligo Oil Based Relief Ink on Ivory White Acid Free Archival Japanese Simili Paper (80g/m2).

The limited edition prints will be numbered (left bottom) and signed (right bottom) in pencil by the artist Tems.

The final prints will be A4 in size (210 × 297mm / 8.27 × 11.69 inches) and come displayed in a 40 Micron Acid Free Clear Cello Display Sleeve with an Acid Free 1.3mm A4 Mount Backing Card.

Risks and challenges

I might accidentally jab myself in the finger with my linocutting tools, though I’d like to think that I’ve learnt from experience with that one!

I could slip and make a mistake while cutting, damaging the design on the lino. It’s rare, but it has happened before. I’m someone who takes great pride in their work, so if that was to happen, I’d start the whole lino again, even if this happened right at the end of the cutting process.
