I bit the bullet and printed the first color of my reduction print, a yellow/orange (process yellow, vermillion relief ink). I printed 16 1/4 sheets (11"x15") Arches cover, dry, 2/10 setting on the relief press.
Next stage: carve away the door, cut hatch lines into hands for lighter tone, carve away light areas on hinge and hatch lines for shading.
Possibly also: carve first botanical pattern into wallpaper.
Second inking will be alizarin crimson in transparent print base.
