Carborundum Proof

May 12, 2013
Carborundum Print on gray Stonehenge
8"x4 5/8"

Managed to pull six successful prints of of the triptych plates for Christmas Day.  I printed them on gray Stonehenge paper with Prussian blue (with a little black) in the carborundum grit.  After wiping the plate clean I daubed white ink onto the plate and it created a nice contrast with the blue and the gray paper. 

The three prints shown hear are the best of the proofs i have pulled off of these plates to date! I may try to print the middle plate with a deep red/black for the details and a body color of yellow pulled over the plexi plate.
