Cradle Adjustments

Making adjustments wasn’t quite part of my grand scheme of mounting prints. But when your prints aren’t exactly 6″x 6″, one has to do a little fudging.

Last week I put in an order for more unfinished cradles to mount prints. The edges get painted black and everything receives a protective UV coating. I’ve pulled out a few popular blocks and started printing using Caligo waterbased oil ink. One of the blocks I thought was 6×6, only to discover it was about 5.5″ x 5.5″. The only way to correct the problem was to bevel the cradle edge on the table saw. So far, so good! Now it’s time for a few layers of white gesso before the print addition.

I was hoping to be driving to California tomorrow to help celebrate Dave’s birthday. He has always wanted to go ride roller coasters and it seemed like the perfect surprise trip. Unfortunately, my back is still having major problems from last weekends dog trial in Washington State. Who knew 5 hours of driving would make so much trouble?! So, it looks like I won’t be doing any major travel anytime soon via air or car!  😦 Maybe, with a little luck, we can get out to Yachats. We shall see…

On the upside, Moby passed two out of three scents (anise and clove). Hazel passed the last one, clove. It will still be a while before getting Hazel on a trial since she hasn’t been interested in work. Moby will also have to wait for additional training to address his aggression issues and passing the birch scent.

    “Not interested in work?!”, Sparta says. “Is Hazel a cat?!”
