"Lutetium 71 Element" printing underway





Finally printing this block. I tried to make the printing easy, yet a way to incorporate a 2-color print. The black is Neri-zumi, a thick concentrated sumi paste, is slightly graded from bottom to center. My hope is to have the silver ink with mica powder to grade from the top down to center of print.
