Carborundum Ghost

May 19, 2013
Carborundum Print
4 5/8" x 8"

The first pull off of this plate was a huge disappointment.  I mixed up this beautiful black/red and then pulled a yellow across it, but forgot to blot the plate.  The first print was unrealized, but it let me know why it is important to blot the plate before printing with this odd inking process I have developed.  By blotting it with newsprint and rubbing it with a spoon I am take the lighter color off of the raised carborundum on the plexi plates.  I love this color combination and want to use it for the montpelier Smokestack plate I pulled a few weeks back.
