"Ever After", lithograph
This is the print that I recently made with the help of WPA (Wildcat Print Association) at University of Arizona. It has 6 printed colors and 1 spot blue hand tint on the eyes. The "key" was printed with black ink (GC#2244) from the stone. For the background was I counter etched the stone and printed a tab tintbase ink. The red lips were hand burnished polyester plate. The remaining colors were drawn on velvet tone mylar and rubylith masks exposed to a photolitho plate.
