Wrenching Times....halftone on goatskin

...more time with Mindy, at her studio in union square, printing the third half-tone polymer plate, on her vandercook Uni III(it has an adjustable bed)which she recently repainted.
The results were great, the softness of the skin proved very suitable for this style of printing, giving a rich deep inking, but not overly inked, picking up every detail and subtle contrast, that maybe is more difficult to capture on a paper surface.
The vellum did not come out that's a tip, if you are going to print on vellum, do not over colour it, a half-tone print will be too subtle to make out.
...having my options limited in this fashion will help me move forward with the design.
Forwarding continues
