On Sunday I took part in the South Orange & Maplewood Artists Studio Tour which was a wonderful experience. Artists open up their studios to the public for the day. I was at the Baird in South Orange with six other artists. These photos are not great but they show you my little corner where I sold my latest t-shirts designs and aprons.

Printing Greeting Cards

I spent Thursday of this week at the Baird Center in South Orange printing greetings cards for my Etsy store on this great Vandercook 20 Rigid Bed Roller Series Proofing Press. I use a magnesium plate mounted on wood, rubber base plus ink and print on Stonehenge paper. I love this ink as it has no smell and can easily be cleaned up with cooking oil. No nasty fumes! The print on the drum is “masegba.” I will post some more pics soon, to show the process in more depth. Happy Valentine’s day!
