Dry Ink, Dry

I printed yesterday and can rest easier knowing the ink is now drying. Next will come the painting - one of my favorite steps in my printmaking process. I do know how to print the Japanese way (Moku Hanga) - I went to Graham Scholes' Boot Camp in Victoria B.C. and learned there -what a fabulous experience it was! (He has workshops every June, & has a nice website -- However, I'm out of practice with the 'wet box' for the damp paper and the bokashi methods etc. Plus, carving one plate is just more feasible for the Mama lifestyle right now! (Not to mention I love using my press).
