Back to work after returning from Christmas in Cincinnati, I printed the 3rd color on my 10 x 10 print. I carved a small piece of gomuban with the shape I wrongly cut away and have reserved the ink I mixed of that color. But after 5 colors now, I am waiting to see if I really need to use it. Here is the 3rd color pass. You will note that I am not printing the whole area of the print. This is a change for me...I am trying to think more about putting the color where it is needed and not building up too many layers. Too many make for shiny areas.
I am printing on Rives BFK and a kozo paper. The Rives version is turning out clearer, the ink spreads out smoothly. With the kozo there is more of the underneath color showing through. I haven't adjusted to the rougher surface but I kind of like the differences.
