New plates




These are just a couple of my newest plates. I ran quick proofs of them today while I had ink on the press, and can't wait to print the final versions. The dog print is taken from a photo of my dog having a great time at the beach on Valentine's Day 2007. The koi will be a two colour limited edition art print, which I'm very excited about.
Today I finally realised that the reason why I've been having so much inking trouble is almost entirely because I've been using slippery PVC tape on the rails. Changing to masking tape today solved all my problems. :)

Good you have your problem solved, but just in case, for slippery rails I have been taught to rub some ordinary white chalk all along the rails.
If you think about it... isn't chalk what gymnasts use for their hands when exercising on the bars?
