Well, I did it. This was a test of many skills and concepts at once:
- Positive/negative registration
- Using ghost images in production
- Borderless plates
- Multiple, different layers of ink with lots of overlap
- Wet-on-wet and wet-on-dry transparency
I worked late into the night on Wednesday so that these prints, some of them with quite a lot of ink, would be dry in time to travel to Eugene for a technical critique and a workshop with Robert Canaga at Whiteaker Printmakers.
I appreciate y'all being patient with how long it takes to photograph and list my stuff on Etsy. Eventually, maybe I'll hire that part out so that it can happen faster. The first of these prints will arrive in the Etsy Shop on Monday. As my skill level increases, my prices are going up a little, but don't forget that blog readers always get a discount by using this code: BLOGMAY16.
