For the last couple of days I have been working on another 'story' - another standing story. Below are the starting points, sugar lift, fine line etching and some open biting.
Starting to get an idea, or ideas, of how I will print these. I am cutting out an embossing which will need to be larger than size of paper on which I will print and the embossings will represent summer. I didn't think that four different styles of etching would look good together so will keep summer, the brightest of the seasons, the most subtle with embossing instead of print.
The introduction of colour in the 'spring' plate works well I think. All looks a little autumnal at present so will need to try in some other colour ways.
Now I am waiting impatiently for the etching ink to dry so that I can sculpt my story. May not be able to do so until later this week. I keep folding my work before it is dry and getting dirty inky marks all over the print!
