Print 1. Project 3: Multicolour prints

Multicolour prints – first layer.

After the recent printing issues I’ve simplified my process by choosing to use just plain 110gsm cartridge paper for the start of this exercise, as detailed in my previous post, because I feel my problems may lie in my paper choices.

I chose Pthalo Green as my base colour and practiced my colour mixing and masking, achieving 4 good prints and an excellent colour range.

Eagle-1st-layer24 hours on and they are nearly dry but I’ll wait until tomorrow morning to apply the next layer.  The course manual stresses that the layers should be fully dry between applications.
