Printing Process -- Umi

Here is the inked block and the finished print, a three-color viscosity woodcut.

Tapping on thalo blue mixed with miracle gel to repel other colors.

Rolling on yellow, red in turn, also of different viscosities that will allow each to print.

Printing block face down on dry print paper. See slats to hold roller off print bed.
Cranking through the press with slow, even pressure. Lifting the block to reveal the print.
