Lumbini - The Easy Block
The first block for these "birthplaces" prints is the easy one. I just cut out my kento (registration guides) and margins, then leave the rest of the block smooth and virgin for the first few impressions. Here I've built up a gold color as the base. It took three impressions of color to arrive at this tone.
