Hi Annie,

The only way I know of to get BFK to respond is to soak it over night
and then blot of the excess water and leave it in a damp envelop for
another day.... It will soften up to a enable you to use it with the
moku hanga technique.....

Last year i accidently bought 100 sheets of Rives BFK heavyweight instead of Rives BFK. I have printed on it using the moku hanga technique. i would say that a ball bearing baren is necessary to do it though. i printed both of these editions using Rives BFK heavyweight and printing went along quite smooth in fact i only lost four prints on the orca. i think it took two or three days to print the orca edition and my arm, in fact, did not fall off.
I have always been a fan of Shepard Fairey and i also come down firmly on the side of Shepard Fairey.

Posted by: Dave Bull

Continued from [Seacoast in Winter - 7] | Starting point of the thread is [Seacoast in Winter]

Step #6 - Next tone on the rocks, including some parts that will be underwater (although you wouldn't guess that by looking at it at this stage!) ...

Step #7 - And the next one on the sky ... You can see how this is going to develop - gradually getting darker and darker as we move along ...

This roadrunner lives in the space between my parents' home and the neighbors', a 10' X 30' patch of juniper and holly. We are all so accustomed to each other, he is a very cooperative model. I was so pleased to be able to take dozens of photos... he'll also become a woodcut but probably not this shot as most wouldn't recognize him without his tailfeathers!


Este correcaminos vive en el espacio entre la casa de mis padres y los vecinos, una area 3 por 9 metros de enebro y acebo. Estamos tan acostumbrados el uno al otro que resulta ser un model sumamente cooperativo. Felizmente tome docenas de fotos... el sera tambien un grabado en madera pero probablemente no este foto como la mayoria no lo reconocera sin sus plumas extremas.
