Test Pring - Paleo-Dragonfly II

Test print done with a baren on kozo paper.

A little less flash from the camera.

All four little test prints.  As usually happens, the first couple don't take ink completely.  The block has to wake up.

I can of course make a black & white print, my default plan on any block.  But I'll give it a try with some color and see what I think.  But now that the block has been used, it'll start to swell a bit and I'll have to open up a few of the finest lines before I can print again.  Par for the course.  It used to frustrate the heck out of me, but now I just take it in stride.  ;- j

I like your comment about the block needing to 'wake up'... so true. This looks like the printing should go quickly!
