Deckle Edge Ghost

Here’s the ‘ghost’ of the monotype I completed yesterday. It’s made by putting a second piece of paper on the plate and putting it through the press again to pick up what’s left of the ink. The ethereal image is very impressionistic, almost pointillist as the pigment fragments on the second pressing. I used Caligo oil based washable litho / relief inks in Process Yellow, Magenta and Cyan plus Extender onto BFK Rives 250gsm paper. It’s a gorgeous one with a deckle edge, very fine, smooth surface. It’s the best for this technique.
