In My Printing Apron

The Salina Project… let the hard work begin..

the arrival of all the paper

So now the labor of  this project begins… I just got my shipment of paper from Daniel Smith and I need to tear it in to same sized pieces so it will be ready to soak and print.  I, also, ordered glassine paper to go in between the etchings when I ship it so that each print will be protected. 

I forgot to mention that I  made a paper template that I placed under the plastic sheeting that protects the bed of my press. This template shows where I will place the solar plate on the bed and where I will place the paper over the plate. This will make it easy for me to print each etching in the edition squarely in the middle of each piece of paper. One less thing to worry about. 

The paper I am using is Arches Cover White… just so you know.

So I am now off to tear my paper before I  leave for the  Defensive Driving Class that I have to take… I have a lead foot when it comes to driving…  This is where life gets in the way of work… Tomorrow morning, Ken and I have to go and jury a Science Fair at the elementary school where our daughter teaches… She is in charge of the Science Fair and we have been judges for about 5 or more years…. This is where the fun part of life gets in the way of work..
