Just some comments on doing hanga. I have been at this stuff now a few
years and still also do oily prints and some painting and a lot of
sketching. I say that so you know that I am far from the most experienced
hanga person. For strong first run color there are two things I think are
important. Number one is mixing your pigments. You can mix them stronger
than something you would buy out of a bottle or tube. Number two is that
little shoe brush. Of course it is not a shoe brush but one made especially
for hanga style printing. I caught myself rubbing away and went oh dear I
am plowing at this and not brushing. You do not need heavy pressure when
you apply the pigment with the brush, that just puts a lot of pigment into
the bristles of your brush not onto your plate. So brush with a light
touch. Remember you ar applying pigment, not taking it away! Funny how
brushing on that pigment made the last few prints a lot brighter, much
better color. Even if you have been doing this awhile some times a reminder
is a good thing.

On the summit, cars and gas. Folks, gas is around $3 a gallon in the US
now, be kind to your drivers. Car pooling is a good thing, so is sharing of
housing, it can help everyone.

Hi Bareners,

Here is the final version of a print I posted here before. After
correcting some registration problems, and a few brain dead moves
along the way I managed to do this final printing of the image titled
"Winter Lilies."

I hope you all enjoy it.
