out of action...

...the little printing press in the print room is poorly and we are now not allowed to use it. the first picture is of me using said press. lately it has been juddering and shaking across the floor. therefore it is now considered dangerous to use the press in case it falls apart and/or injures someone. i managed to use the press today before access was denied to print off quite a few of the deckchair prints. instead of using the trusty prussian blue, i had a go at mixing some other blues and greens to print the sea bit of the print. with each print the sea kept getting greener and greener and i am slowly getting more confident with printing in other colours when printing etching plates. so much so that for the last print of the day i decided to print the deckchair in red! a little section of colour all by itself.
