All Done... 8-]

The block is done. I printed the last 4 prints today. This one was very labor intensive as you can see. All that light blue had to be blotted away before I could print the block. I suppose I could have made myself a template to mask that area, but I got pretty good at cleaning it up. Baby powder helped.

I had less to clean up once I stopped inking the whole block with a large brayer and worked with a small one on just the blue areas. But of course I was nearly done by then. ;-j

Well. My first retired wood block. I haven't quite figured out what to do with it. Put a hook on the back and hang it up? Too bad I have zero wallspace in my studio.
