__ How many Prints did you make this week? 8 etchings
__ How many of these taught you something new? I learnt that when the paper is too wet, the print comes out much fainter and with a more washed out effect. Also that I often remove too much ink and this resuts in faded, wishy washy prints.
__ How many hours did you spend in the Printmaking Workshop? 6
Successful prints -
I think these prints have come out really well, these were the final few after the mistakes. This is the scene where the Jay finds the peacock feathers and adorns his tail with them, then attempts to join the Peacocks.
Really, I don't think I even need to write why I think these prints are rubbish! The tone is too light and they are not 'inky' enough.
