These are not etchings...they are collagraphs.
SO excited!
Etching press squared up and working great!
These ARE the first proofs from the press in the new studio...
and with NEW blankets!
No, not the best photos, but they'd have to dry before flattening...
and I just didn't want to wait.
SO good to see this!
More later! 
 This next one...
I couldn't stop myself. 
I was just messing around....experimenting.
I should have known better.
I grabbed a too thin aluminum plate that was lumpy...
Bent, not straight...yes, lumpy.
I'll work to get a good print of it...
and never, ever use a lumpy, bent plate again!!
Rockets....1st state.

Ex Libris

Ex Libris.  
Never did one before,
but thought it might be fun to do a few to generate
some thinking in the minds of those who will try their hand 
at woodblock cutting and printing
in Door County during a public session I expect to be heading up.
More about this later.
I'll finish the block and print it while I work on the next one.
I will post better photos of these, once things settle down a bit.
