My first reduction print!

I’m so pleased with this! For the past several weeks I’ve been working out the best way to register prints to ensure these reductions print well. (Registration means to keep the plate and paper in much the same position for every layer of ink.) The WetCanvas forum was very helpful in my research and I also purchased online from a company in the US (Ternes Burton) a package of registration pins and tabs.

This has 5 layers of different greys, starting with the lightest grey and finishing with the black. I printed them all over the course of last weekend and they’ve been drying on the floor. I need to find a different way (ie. less space consuming) of drying prints.

It’s an edition of 10 and is 30cm x 30cm, printed on Somerset 250gsm Satin White.
