Disposable printing

This week I have been teaching recycled relief printing, normally for this, I use polystyrene trays from under pizza's. This time, I tried using the foiled lids of takeaway containers. As with the polystyrene trays you draw into the foiled surface using a biro, indenting the surface. Th results were very good, it is a quick easy technique and when the printing ink is even they are almost like etchings.
