Printing ...

9:00 AM ~ (second day). Unfortunately for this 'photo essay', my two photographers are not available this morning - they would rather go to their figure skating lesson! (These kids today ... no sense of responsibility ...)

So we've missed a bit here. The first colour of the morning was a light sandy brown, printed in the background area around the two fans. Once that was done, I then printed the same block again, but this time with a mixture of nikawa (liquid gelatine) and aluminum powder. You can see some of this mixture being dabbed onto the block in this photo (a 'one-handed' camera shot ...)

There isn't enough metal powder to totally cover the printed area with a silver colour - there is just enough to add a sparkled effect across the background of the print.
