Doing my thumbnail sketches and research for the big print. Must get the image finalized today. The deadline is coming up soon.
After graining my stone I roundoff the edges with a file and then use wet sandpaper to make it smooth. This will prevent ink collecting on the edges of the stone during roll-up and printing.
Yes, go ahead and say it, "she's procrastinating again"... A full pot of coffee later, I like to call it "processing"...maybe it's the "printmaking dance" I do every single time I get ready to draw on the stone. Back to my drawing...hope everyone is having a good print week. A visiting artist is coming tomorrow to talk at the UofA. Her name is Minna Resnick, look forward to seeing her work.
