This piece of wood was sanded, burned, wire brushed, and then inked.
The wood isn't level enough to be put through the press so this image is hand burnished using a bone folder. Its a slow, careful process and takes up to an hour as very millimetre of the paper has to be pressed onto the wood.
But so worth it!
Printed by hand onto Heritage Rag paper. It is a 100% cotton, unbuffered, Fourdrinier made paper with a vellum surface. It has a full archival specification.
Each print is signed and I note the date of printing on the reverse, and the number of the print.
No more than 50 will be printed.
