Two prints at a time...


Getting ready to add color to these two editions. The printing went well, I've been using Graphic Chemical #2244 shop black and so far am quite pleased with it.  It does have a tendency to scum more than the Senefelder's Crayon Black but it is so much easier to "roll out".  Printed my mylar images to help with registration. Today I'm drawing the "Smart" plate for the color blue. Need to juggle the slate slab onto the press bed but one of the big stones is sitting on the hydraulic. Just a bit of a hassle, like musical chairs with heavy stones. I may let the plate "cure" overnight.  We have a guest arriving tomorrow from Japan.  May not be able to print for a few days.  Busy as usual, but the weather is beautiful here so who can complain.

Joseph from Drive By Press was just in town. The WPA at UofA had a special event at Club Congress and he was there to help. He also gave a demonstration and a lecture the day before. Nice...
