Comments: This is my second reduction block and I found it both exhilarating and frightening. Iím not used to doing a total edition at one time. There is always the danger of damaging the block and thus the whole run at any stage. Overall Iím pleased with the result. I would have gone back and changed a couple things, but of course there is no going back with a reduction block. There are two basic color effects, stemming from experiments with the lightest color. I like them both. It changes the mood of the print slightly.
