Making colour separations .. continued
I print as many kyogo as I expect there to be blocks needed for the print ... plus a couple of extra. Now the work of deciding which 'areas' will need blocks begins. Using a fluorescent marker, I mark out the 'zones' of colour. The sheet I am working on in this photo will be for the colour block used to print the background colour of the fan with the bird design.
Note that the yellow I am using has no relation at all to the colours that will appear in the finished print. It is simply an 'easy-to-see' bright tone.
