Simple black on white. I would not have guessed that I would be so intrigued with such a simple palette. I had the good fortune to spend the day printing with Jan Lor, a brilliant print maker and fellow farmer's market atisan.
These are two of the new relief prints I made today. I created a "plate" of cardboard shapes on mat board, sealed with acrylic gel. Water-soluble printing ink was then rolled on with a brayer. The high spots were wiped off. The plate was then rolled through a wonderful, extremely expensive, printing press to reveal the most amazing results. No two prints were exactly the same and the textures were amazing. It felt like the best use of a day off I'd discovered in a very long time.
