I am still alive
Well I have been trying to produce some work. I have many things on the go, but not any perfected yet. I have been really frustrated and wondering if printmaking really is for me - the organisation and cleanliness required is incredibly painful and restricting. I don't think that there is a work space big enough to cope with me. Perhaps I just haven"t found my process yet.
I did a reduction print using my safe wash caligo inks on silk cut. On the final roll, which is with black, it seems to have taken off tiny spots from the two previous colors. When I take the plate off it is covered with tiny blue and coral spots, resulting in a speckled print. Any ideas? I think I might multiple plate method and not reduction lino cuts for a while.
The picture of the print I have uploaded is done without the final black that keeps stuffing up. I have two left and I am just going to keep them the way that they are.
