Over the last few weeks pt 1.


I have been busy with a multitude of different endeavours… over the last few weeks.

So as a start to this series… here are a few pics of a different use for the laser…

Japanese wood block printing.

Take a blank of timber… in this case New Guinea Rosewood.

The lighter unengraved part will be the actual print… by painting the block and then using it to print on paper.

One last pic as a teaser for next post
