6th Color Printed from Smart Plate
Drew with sharpie onto a smart plate for the 6th color. All of the plates for each color held up really well through 50 prints.
I draw on the Smart plates 24 hours before I print. By
allowing the sharpie to "set up" well (at least overnight) it doesn't seem to break down or
integrate with the ink. For example if I print too soon the black sharpie will mix in with the ink, yellow ink will turn green.
