Lino printing is a form of fine art printmaking where paint is applied on an object and put it on a piece of paper. Then, it run through a printing press or pressure applied by hand to transfer the ink to the paper. In result, we get a linocut print of the object on which paint is applied. Thanks to Jenifor, for such helpful blog about lino printing. For more details you can research over the internet.
