I have been a bad blogger, I know. But, lectures have finished, I've had my assessment, and term ends this week so I have no more excuses!
I have been a little distracted by this...
... my very own printing press!
Today I tried it out for the first time with a couple of collagraph plates I made a while ago. Here is the very first print made on my very own printing press...
... and a few more... just test pieces, I'm not using my expensive paper yet!
I do think I need a bigger and better drying rack though. This one is a bit limited in size, it is meant for sweaters and for some reason it only has 3 legs now. But it will have to do for the time being.
So for the next few days I shall mainly be making printing plates!
