Slow progress forward
Little Ms Hazel is coming near the end. A few more areas to darken & a bit more definition in others. My big quandary is whether to add a dog dish or not. Since I’m feeling lazy, I probably won’t add it it, but a bit more ground work is likely so she’s sitting on something. I hate it when critters look like they’re floating. A final ink color to decide as well….
The plate wiping is really the biggest thing to work through. It’s difficult to keep thin ink lodged in light scratches. I’ll try another paper brand to see if softer paper can pull the image out better. Thanks for the suggestion Carol! And a big thanks to Rosie for the ink suggestion too. It’s great to have so many printmaking friends!
Thursday I’ll be running the edition whether hell or high water! Fingers crossed!
