Sharon Tate linocut portrait print



Sharon Tate linocut tribute portrait, based on her character from the 1967 film The Fearless Vampire Killers (or Pardon Me, But Your Teeth Are In My Neck).

Test prints on two different papers using custom-mixed blood red ink. Also visible: my new glow-in-the-dark carving gouge holder / stand.

Hand carved and hand printed on either 5×7″ thin natural colored paper or heavier white mixed media paper.

Printed using Speedball professional oil-based relief ink on 5×7″. Each print will be signed, titled (Sharon), and dated (year) on front.

For linocuts, each block is hand-carved with various carving tools. After carving, to create a print, ink is rolled onto the block surface with a roller (brayer) and then the paper is applied and hand-burnished to transfer the ink to the paper.

Each linoleum block is hand-carved and each print is hand-printed, which means there may be variations in texture or color between prints. This is a unique characteristic of the medium and part of the charm of linocut prints.

You will receive the print unframed, in a plastic sleeve, inside a semi-rigid cardboard mailer envelope (example shown in last photo). I ship via USPS First Class and the shipping cost includes tracking.
