Simple Shape and Speckles


Sometimes it's a tremendous relief to just work with a simple shape and leave all the fancy carving behind. The process of making this new print will be more about printing than carving.


The speckled pattern that one can achieve with mokuhanga is called gomazuri.


Gomazuri is created by using a lot of water and a light touch with the baren. I want the surface of this shape to look like rock.
