I cut some paper and set everything up and printed about eight of the 'color' plate with Akua Carbon Black. Good thing I decided to check the registration with the 'line' plate, which turned out to be good, because it was the inks that weren't going to work. I used Akua Mars Black, thinking it would be significantly darker and stand out over the Carbon Black, but it didn't.
I added a little Akua Titanium White to the Carbon Black and tried again. It looked so great I was doing a little happy dance.
I took a picture of the first "Rupert".
Are you peeking?
I didn't have time to finish them all today. I got only 8 made and this is a busy week. I don't know when I'll get around to finishing the rest. I was hoping I'd get them in the mail by this Friday, Chinese New Year, but it's not looking like that will happen. But soon.
