  1. This is a nice video…fun. But this technique is not pochoir. Pochoir is a stencil method, meaning that ink goes THROUGH the holes cut out of the matrix. The matrix itself is not inked up for pochoir. Traditionally, artists/craftsmen would use thick round flat headed brushes to dab ink through the holes of the stencil. That is what Pochoir is. What you are doing here is more like relief printmaking.
