Playing with color on washi. Doesn't take pastel well. I'll be printing on sturdier paper.

Test prints in gray and taupe.

block cleaned and powdered ~ I'll brush it when it's dry
assorted test prints in shades of gray and taupe
May try black next time, just to compare. I was hoping to make Gabby look more natural. I plan to add pastel to the background. WIP.

Might be done. At least for a test print.
Faux print ~ greyscale mirrored image to see what it'll look like printed.
I'll be printing it with grey or tan or beige for Gabby's shading. I'll be adding pan-pastel for color.
Of course I know I'll have to recarve some lines after I print. The wood always swells and my lines are chronically too fine. ;- j
