The stonecut is a variation of the woodcut. A soapstone slab is painted white, then the printer carefully copies the drawing onto the stone using black India ink. The areas that should not to be printed are chisseld away. The printer inks the image with a soft rubber roller, sometimes using more colours at once, and covers the image with a piece of ricepaper. Rubbing the paper against the the carved image with various pressure, to create different degrees of sharpness. The different colours used will merge and blend into interesting patterns. At last the paper is peeled off and hung to dry. For each impression should the stone be re-inked
