Crooked 5.2008

Crooked is a two-color print on Hosho paper. This is the first woodblock that I have printed using Daniel Smith water-soluble inks. The inks have a really nice satin finish and do not seem to get glossy when printing over other colors. The downside to the ink is that they take several days to dry (around 4-5 days). Humidity and paper choice will also affect dry times. The upside is that these inks will not reactivate with water once they are dry, and they are a healthy alternative to oil inks.
