I would like to thank all those who have sent their prints, and all those who have contacted me about their prints being a little late.

The deadline was November 1, and I'm trying to wrap up business. I'm not having success with emails I have sent to several on the participant list, so will the following people please get in touch with me at Thanks!

Just a thought. Why not use less nails by using just enough to put up
a metal strip? Then print size is not an issue; you can store the
magnets on one end, hang prints from just one corner, paint it the
same color as the wall, put two or more up maybe a foot apart and hang
prints like crazy.

Subject: Mystique Series #17 : Carving underway ...
Posted by: Dave Bull

After all the postings about such things as insulation and assistants, perhaps we've all forgotten just what this is all about ... yes, time for some printmaking!

Mystique #16 shipped exactly on schedule on September 15th. I knew that the next one would be late, because of the interruption caused by the 10 day trip to Canada to see my family, but I didn't know that it would get this far off! What got in the way was the necessity of getting a stack of Gift Prints ready. Back last spring I had planned to get those all printed and set aside quite early this year, but with all the extra projects going on over on the Mokuhankan side of my affairs this year, it just wasn't possible. So there went another couple of weeks.

And of course, having two printer trainees here has eaten up enormous amounts of time ... not to mention the 'week off' I just had while busy with the construction progress on the workroom ...

But over the past few days I have tried to get the ship back on course, and can now report that eight of the ten blocks for the next Mystique print are now done. Here's a quick rundown of what they look like - roughly snapped at the workbench this evening:

Subject: Engrave the wave!
Posted by: Sue

Yesterday's work saw the ladies progress further. I still want to put a pattern on the lady in front's costume and a few other bits but now I'm going to engrave the wave (I like that phrase!). Wish me luck!

By the way, the size of this block is 3" x 5" (75mm x 136mm)
