Printing the Drill Drawing
This week I printed the sky portion of the Pyramid print, which I had previously drawn on the block with an electric drill. I printed three layers of color, and because the drill lines weren't very deep the printed lines closed up quite a bit.
Fortunately the last layer, the blue, was a strong color, so it came out OK.
Next up is the final linework (keyblock).
