Teacup Take Two

3.5 x 2.5 inches, ink on paper

I did a few things differently this time. I soaked the Fabriano paper for 10 minutes before blotting it and storing it in a sealed plastic bag. Then I waited 2.5 hours before printing so the paper would really 'take' the water in. I also covered the inking tray with a damp cloth between rolling.

It's a new carving too. The edges of the lip and base aren't wavy lines this time - more hard-edged. And the cleared areas follow the cup to better create the 'ting' sound-waves so characteristic of china.
