It Worked!


This morning I printed the Mayflower block using the setup I showed you in the previous post and it worked like a charm. It was a fussy process, as I had to wipe ink off the mask after every impression and I also needed to use a wooden spoon along with the baren in order to get a firm print along the edges of the acetate mask. I wanted a sort of ghostly impression with the boat almost a part of the water, so I'm happy with how it came out.

Here's a shot of the block inked and the mask in place:
