Here are my greetings for the New Year, sent as cards.
They are woodcuts, two plates. The orange/red colour was printed first. The black colour is the Schminke “Aquadruck” black relief ink diluted with extender kindly lent to me by Connie at East London Printmakers. Her extender was from the Caligo range, and was slightly whitish. It seemed to work better than the Schminke version.
The gold star is punched out of some golden wrapping paper I received last year.
The paper is Fabriano Unica, cut to size on the marvellous electrical guillotine.
Happy New Year!
