Today was much more successful but it took me awhile to find a process I delighted in. We started by positive printing – the plate was inked up in the same manner as negative printing, the paper laid on top than the drawing made on the back of the paper. I struggled with this but then went onto using water and …… yes……. this is the way to go!
I used wet ink on dry paper, wet paper on dry ink and wet ink on wet paper. Another breakthrough was using my much beloved lining paper. It’s sturdy, absorbs colour readily and can be used in small or large pieces.
