I saw her show when it was in Cleveland a few years ago, and I bought a copy of the book. This is a method I had been meaning to try. I did a few very tiny ones, and it was a fun, satisfying way to work. You don't get many prints, even working tiny, but each lifting of the paper to see what transpired was a thrill.

I've seen these before, but forgot about them.Thank you for posting them. They are the best of the best.

very nice! thanks and kisses
