Week 10 – Final Prints! – Joseph

DSCN8056My final prints of the train are done!  I decided to do a series of prints keeping a consistent, black main image while altering the color of the insert.  I solved the registration problem by building a jig (pictured below) which has served me well.  Basically, I tape a sheet of paper to the top of the jig, ink the first (colored) block, and print.  Then, I lift up the paper keeping it attached to the jig, pull out the first block, substitute it with the second block (black), and print again.  Both blocks are positively aligned against the L shape, ensuring that their placement is consistent and therefore the image is printed correctly.
