New Print in Progress #2

I posted about my plates for the letterpress swap before and I was so excited to start printing at my new studio! I am renting a studio in Brooklyn now so I can print more and more!

It’s the same Vandercook press, but each press feels so different when you use it. Each press definitely has a personality, I think. This guy is cool, a bit tricky at first, but prints very nicely.

Mixing the second color – pale green:

Printing the second color:

Overlapped area:

The third color – using almost same green, I printed this on the green graphic from the second print…
