This is the last week of my show before it comes down, its been a blast to be able to put it together and see all these ideas play out in a gallery space.
So this is my progress so far, got the mixture right on the second one in a lager scale. Found that a 1 to 25 ratio on the hardner to the resin works great and the 2.5 to 25 caused way to much heat causing fractures, but overall super happy with results and have started on my second mold to move along this project. I sanded them down and sprayed a clear coat on them for the finish
here is the most recent print i have from my toner experiments, it looks like the detail is much better than froim my previous prints. all the washes came out and even the thicker parts have a layered texture which embossed the paper and also came out on top of the paper giving it an awesome depth and density.
been working on putting this technique to use recently and am really enjoying the results. It started with reuse of old plates to reduce cost for students, and has come full circle to using pronto plates to teach students the basic in lithography, and get good results. these are some of my experiments.
