|Ron demonstrating how to print a second plate over a ghost image.|
|The resulting image....so far! He's not finished yet.|
|A demonstration of adding contact monotype drawing to the print. Note the change in the intensity of the green: a "veil" of opaque white was applied to knock down the green.|
|Three Chine-collé elements added to the print as well as|
a textured bit of reddish ink on the bottom and yellow ink on the sides.
|Look familiar? This was printed onto thin gampi, a type of Japanese tissue paper.|
|My plate inked and Solarplate print bits applied, ready to print.|
|Ron showing how to integrate the Chine-collé bits into the print.|
Here is the first print I made. It's busy, chaotic, and exuberant but it does have a certain charm. I might re-work it since it might be a little over the top, but for now, I'm OK with sharing.
|Coming off the press...this was done with two plates; the pink and orange colors are |
on a separate plate, so it was run through the press twice.
