These digital prints are usually printed colour on colour, layer by layer, in order to give them greater contrast and stronger colours. This is a similar technique to that used when making lithographic prints and the effect is similar.
Some of the other prints are produced by using layers of digital printing where further layers are made through the use of woodcut or etching.
