Your Days Are Numbered Print Exchange
I printed a few extra from the first color pull in a greener version, to play around with later. I wanted to experiment with different color variations to see how to get the figure to pop out. But I am happy with this two color version. It took me awhile to carve the (golden cut) linoleum after having used Gomuban for my last 4 reduction prints. But the Gomuban didn't come in a size large enough to accommodate the 22" image requirement. Gomuban is the name of the product at McClain's. The same product is available at Graphic Chemical but they call it Blue Vinyl. I asked Dean Clark if he could get it in a larger size and he said he would check on his next trip to Japan (where this product originates).
My next two projects are exchanges due in January. Both will utiltize solarplates. So I will be switching hats, after a few days of play with the remaining relief prints.
