Flowers

So this post is a bit of a work in progress. I am working out as I go along how the sticky foam pieces work in the letter press, and also how I can get lots of colours onto the ‘same’ pressing.

Lets start with a snap of the first plate. I’ve taken some prints from it already, that’s why it’s red. I’m now thinking about cutting it up so that i can ink the various elements separately, and make a second plate with shadows and a flat surface to put the vase on.

Sticky foam shapes originally, castles, hearts and flowers make up this bouquet. The surface is glittery which gives an aquatint effect under lower pressures in the press.

The first proofs should be dry soon so I can use them to work on this A3 sized composition.
