Styrocut, hand printed on rice paper / styrogravure, imprimé à la main sur papier de riz

Styrocut is a fast and economical, even ecological way of printing. Any kind of styrofoam will do, plates, vegetable packaging; any tool will do, a dull pencil, a ball point, a bamboo pen.

Any kind of paint will do,  depending of their consistency and viscosity, they will leave more or less texture, more or less pigment.

When all is set, the paint on the styrofoam, the paper on the paint… the magic takes place and the image appears in reverse.

La styrogravure est un moyen rapide, économique , même écologique d’imprimer. Peu importe le styromousse, assiette, emballage de légumes; peu importe l’outil, un crayon émoussé, une pointe en bambou.

Peu importe la peinture, selon la consistance et viscosité elle laissera une marque plus ou moins texturé et avec plus ou moins de pigment.

Quand tout est en place, la peinture sur le styromousse, le papier sur la peinture…la magie opère et l’image inversée  apparaît.

  1. Wow, I just love these. The first one is very strong and mysterious. The other two have the look of ancient Greek urn figures. Fantastic Benedicte. I should get the kids (and me) to have a go doing some. Thanks for all the details.

  2. Wow, these are so stunning. I’m having a hard time wrapping my mind around the idea that these are made using styrofoam. I’m with Gabe, these images look very ancient! Did the Greeks have styrofoam?

    You are amazing, Ben. Beautiful and powerful prints!
