Time in the Print Studio

Time in the Print Studio 

Finally some time for printing, experimenting with water based relief printing inks and a variety of Japanese printing papers to compare results 

The ink used us by a company called Nerchau and is quite sticky in quality, not sure how smooth it is going to dry on large areas if black ..

 Some experiments with chine colle process using mulberry paper, not to keen on the nori glue as it is kind of gloppy and went straight through the paper therefor sticking to the woodcut block ... More play needed 

All on drying rack now
