Printing Babylon

Today I started to print my Iraq map, titled Locusts In Babylon. I printed brown ink, lots of water and no paste using my palm and fingers to get this texture for the bottom:

There will be a lot of overprinting on top of this layer, so the paper is now sitting in a damp stack to allow the moisture from the last printing to distribute evenly through the stack. I'm working with 20 sheets of Echizen Kozo.
