A modern design transferred onto fine art paper by hand embossing. This process involves the pressing of paper fibres gently from the reverse of the paper through a template designed specifically for this purpose, which results in a raised pattern on the front. In this case there are two levels of embossing, with the cap and swimsuit being in a higher relief than the rest of the body
The swimsuit and cap are also decorated by hand with ink pens, making each print slightly different and unique.
The image is embossed on offcuts of high quality textured Somerset printmaking paper, making use of materials that would otherwise be discarded. These offcuts are perfect on the front but may ha e the occasional blemish on the back, totally invisible from the front.
