Flowers were the object of my print proofs: from one side of the double plate I finished carving yesterday.
My background paper is also an experiment: 42gsm Kozo paper prepared for inkjet.
I want the colour to come from the background paper rather than from the print flowers, so I inked up the plate with grey.
Perhaps I will use a paler grey next time. The figure outline has to be printed on top once the ink is dry, so I'll see what the effect is then. I will also see how well the paper stands up. So far so good.
