Behind in posting…

Oops!!! So I just posted photos of my wood block up close and personal, saying that it was ready to print purple…but I already did!!! Yesterday before work, I scrambled around and got my dark purple layer finished!!

YAYYY!!!! 7/9 colors done!!

 

I’ve posted photos of the process before, but I want to show it once more:

I start off with my color laid out with the roller on a giant glass table…

Barney purple, yo.

After I get the color evenly spread along the roller, I roll it onto the wood block. It’s key to get the layer of color to be even across the whole block, if not, you get patchy. And no one likes patchy…unless you are a pirate!! ARGH!!

“1st Because Yuck”

Once it is evenly rolled across your block, you have to run it through the press. The registration pins and holes are EXTREMELY important in this step. Notice the tape and holes along the print paper? Those need to be placed exactly on the pins or the layers will print off. WHICH HAPPENED WITH THIS PRINT!!! Hence, the “1st Because Yuck” written along the top…

Such a pretty profile!

The good thing about viewing something from far away is that you can’t see the mess-ups 😀 For example, her profile is GORGEOUS!! But if you look carefully at the flower on the fan, you can catch the mess up on layers with the red showing through…dammit. But that could just be me…everything is starting to get a bit fuzzy around the edges with registration…the curse of multiple layers!!!

My purple snack!

My snack for the day was a pack of PURPLE grapes. Ignoring the fact that the label says “red seedless grapes,” they are OBVIOUSLY purple in color…
