I just posted a few of the color variants of a small print I carved and
printed (again) after an earlier attempt from early July. (SEE: I got some odd "tortoise-shell" blotchyness on many of the
prints that I think were from the paper being too wet...or printing too wet. I am
using decent, sized, Japanese papers but since I am printing very thin
colors...mostly rice paste tinted with watercolor I'm being careful not to get too
much on the plate. The print ends up looking like blotter paper with the
color very unevenly being absorbed and it doesn't seem to help to redrop after
reinking. Seems to me that baren pressure forces excess water out of the paper
so in that area the ink doesn't enter?
Paper is cool to the touch and doesn't seem waterlogged but it's a bigger
problem in the larger flat color areas.
Any ideas?
Sincerely, Andrew Stone
P.S. It's not goma zuri which also shows up on these prints but the larger
blurred/blotchy color areas in the vase.
