These are two blockprinting commissions from this winter. Both of these are registered by eye, as I was working in the smaller space indoors.
First, a set of trim options on crossdyed silk, using the Russian round block, the heart from the pony print, a rose, and a diamond made of hearts carved by Fjorlief. This was meant to have a general rus effect, and hearts are a common motif. I used blue, purple, and gold ink on the red/blue shot silk.
I selected from blocks on hand, and we decided two colors would suit best.
After testing various ink colors, we settled on a medium burgundy and gold. Note: speedball gold takes forever to dry in the winter.
