Making Progress

I finished the two plates today that I will use for the Art House Exchange. The background plate was made using a Solarplate and will be printed as an intaglio with a surface roll. The second plate was carved from linoluem and will be printed as a relief over the background image.

The next step will be to play around with colors and do some proofing. However, in printmaking, plans can change during the proofing stage because you can never be sure how the images will print or if they will work together as intended. Sometimes it's "back to the drawing board" but that's what make the process so interesting.

  1. Hi Melody, It's really interesting to see these two plates, and look forward to seeing the next stage.. I'm wondering whether it would be possible to see the image you used to expose the solarplate. I'm interested to see how much contrast there is in it.
