I just completed "Bound".
I'm happy that I moved the quartet of images from the center of the background and introduced a more random lace pattern. There are two plates. The background plate was inked as an intaglio with a warm yellow and then a surface roll of gray blue ink was applied. The small intaglio plate was inked in a dark blue gray, placed in position, and run through the press.
I finished the print by adding metal eyelets and black cotton twine for lacing. Yellow ocher thread was hand stitched in the central section.
