And Yet Another Line, Intaglio with Chine Colle
23 x14.5

Walk with a camera in hand, looking down for textures and patterns…
“What’s this, a funny piece of seaweed on this California beach?”
Snap, print, enlarge, copy and flip, trace onto a hardground-covered copper plate, scratch, scratch with needle, dip, dip, dip into the ferric chloride and then clean off
the hardground.

Ink with alizarin crimson, place on the press bed, cover with dampened and dusted with wheat paste piece of goldenrod Lama Li, cover with larger piece of blue Lama Li paper, similarly prepared, cover with soaked and blotted white 250gsm BFK and run through the press. Voila! A print. Dry thoroughly in blotters before removing.

(The seaweed doesn’t recognize itself because it’s now something new.)
