Printing


With a baren.  I miscalculated the thickness of the block and it doesn't fit on the press (who knew?).

So I made a couple test prints and a couple that might do for the card.  I may do some more tomorrow, but this was all I could manage today.

More Carving on a Rainy Day







Getting there.  I expect there will be some recarving of the finer lines, but I should be making a test print shortly.

Getting Close







Coming along.  Getting close.  Lots more detail yet.  And I kinda know I'll have to deepen some of those fine lines.

Still Carving



Dark version of the block tho show more contrast.  Coming along.  I can see where a lot of my lines are (as usual) too fine.  I'll see how it prints when I finally ink it up.


And the mirrored version.
