Plate Making and Proofing

This is the background plate intaglio inked in a blue gray and then relief rolled in a pale peach color.

The second plate with the figures was intaglio inked in a dark gray. This is one of the old photopolymer plates which is deeply bitten. Even though the plate was exposed to an aquatint screen, there are inking problems because of "open biting".

I decided to burn a new plate for the figures using a new Solarplate and was much happier with the outcome; more detail. Next step is to see how and if the two plates work together.
