Test Printing

I made a test plate to experiment with textures, inking and adding text.

I've used gum Arabic transfer to add the text. As I'm just playing I've used text I had left over from other projects.

I like the three colours of the viscosity inking (it really works for the colour of the sandstone) and I think I'm going to add the text as chine colle so that I still get some colour and texture behind it


  1. Great progress and I like the result of the viscosity printing too; the melding of colours give a real sense of the stone.

  2. I agree with Fiona; the stones look very real in these colours !


I really appreciate hearing from you. Thank you for taking the time.
