Hummingbird print

More experimenting with sytrofoam prints: this time, trying to work out how to get more colour into the print. First, I checked that the drawing was adequate by printing it in black.

I applied coloured ink using card tabs and paper.

Then I cut out the hummingbird from the background, and inked the parts separately.

I carved more of the background, and then printed the plates again.
