No Woodblocks Will Be Harmed
Acetate masking (and glare from lamp)
To make this print I want to deconstruct the Tibetan design without actually deconstructing the woodblock itself. To accomplish this I've been using acetate to block out and print one section at a time. Since there are no registration marks on the block I'm printing free-form, just eyeballing where I want the paper to go.
The top portion of the block
Smooshing letters together
Another line of text
As you can see, this print will not be particularly subtle.
Now to carve the Chinese lettering.
