This plate has printed with excellent definition. If you read my last blog post you will appreciate the beauty of the marks but the boring outcome of the overall plate.
However, if you concentrate on individual small sections you can pick out the extraordinary detail that has been achieved through inking, rubbing back, applying a different colour, rubbing back again and blending, but as a finished print it is very lacking.
As it was never planned as a stand-alone print I’m not worried at all. It is useful as a proof to provide me with a visual record for my archives, and in case I wish to use it again in the future.
Herewith the printed result with the black mask in place.
Yes, just what I wanted. Space rocks!
