I've been playing with the baby etching press some more...
I printed an edition of six; because the plate is inked and wiped for
each print, they are all slightly different (plus I was playing around
with varying the amount of ink I left on the plate). The chine colle is the gold crest of the little bird.
Printed area is approx. 5 by 8".
I was fairly pleased with the way these turned out, but it's not
easy to judge just how much ink to wipe off! I guess it comes with
experience, so I'll keep on keeping on with these!
I'm planning a series of prints, using various techniques, based on the birds I see and hear from the house/garden here in Cambridgeshire. Calling it the 'Bird List' project, not very inspired I know! (Let me know if you think of a better name...) Should keep me going for a while...
