Mystique Series #17 : printing steps 18~

Here we go ... let's finish this thing!

Here's the final bit of actual colour on the print - the cartouche box gets its usual touch of pink (slightly toned this time, as it was also 'hit' by the original beta block):

With the colour in that box now done, the title can go in. The series title was done back at the beginning, along with the outlines, but each print in the set of course has its own title block:

This next one may not be visible on these scans. It is a small-scale embossing block which adds feather shapes to the body of the bird. It'll certainly be visible to the collectors looking at the real thing!

And of course, the final stage of all these prints in the Mystique series is the patterned embossing around the edge of the paper:

So there she is. After a few days of deskwork, I'll get another batch of 100+ sheets moistened, and start all over again!
