Studio blog of Annie Bissett, an artist working with traditional Japanese woodblock printing (moku hanga)
18 January 2007
Not much to say. I started printing the Darfur blocks today. It took most of the day to get these two impressions laid down. I'm doing a run of 20 pieces of paper. This is a large print for me -- the paper is 13" x 19" -- so it takes a lot of arm strength to get a good impression. I'm glad I got a ball-bearing baren, which lets a weakling like me get lots of pressure in spite of my skinny arms.
