Got these 4 done....quite messy to do....you use a brayer to spread the ink (that must be at the right consistency, usually mixed with a few drops of retarder...I said "retarder", not retarded!) onto your plexiglas plate, then you quickly draw or add some bits of paper or strings or whatever to add texture onto the plate and then you turn the plate and apply it onto your paper, flip it (however NOT like a crepe) to put it under the printing press...aie...aie...aie..too much ink and you get puddles, not enough and you get...insipid nothing colors....well hopefully you get the point.
Upon looking at the results you can leave it as is or you can do a 2nd printing over it.
The only one that was left "as is" is the 2nd one.
I had tons of fun and learned a lot, loved it!
