Wall of prints.

Kathrin carved 4 images on MDF and lino. These were inked up in different colours and printed out using the yellowXpress 5000. As you can see from the photo, Kathrin had trouble stopping. ( that's wonderful- we never run out of paper in the Homeprint Studio) My technique is choose the best one from each of the carvings and withdraw them from the edition. It is best to sign and date them at this stage so you have a record of the first cut. The remaining prints, the bulk of them, will be over printed with at least one more colour after the second carving. Reductive or subtractive carving.
