First color printed.
I'm using Akua intaglio ink and printing on Arches 88 paper.
The printing went well and the tabs didn't interfere with the blanket.
I spent the morning cutting the first color away and by lunch time I was ready to lay down the second color.
Moment of truth. As I lifted the print, I was impressed that the second color was spot on, as far as the registration goes.
In no time at all I had eight prints pulled. My jig made it easy to place the plate on the bed and the tabs made it so easy to lay down the paper; no futzing around to carefully align edges.
I know this is only two colors and the print is in its early stages but hopefully this will continue with the subsequent colors. I'm excited to see how this progresses.
