Mystique Series #17 : printing step 3

Posted by Dave Bull at 2:01 AM, November 17, 2011 [Permalink]

Just one impression today, although it was actually 'two', as it was printed twice on the same block:

The background on this one is going to act as the 'key' block - everything else to come will now (hopefully) fit into its proper place in the open areas.

It wasn't an easy impression - the problem is to find a balance between pressing the paper very firmly, to get a good deep black, and yet not press it so hard that it smears over the edges of the lines. We'll see in the upcoming steps just how critical this is on this particular design. It's not at all clear at this point that it will be completely successful.
