Reduction Linocut

Last night I went to Wingtip Press and printed the first color of my reduction linocut attempt.  It went pretty well.   So now I'm really scared for when I go back in a couple of weeks to do the second part of the "suicide" print.  That's a nickname for reduction linocut because if you mess up, you can't go back and print more. You are always cutting away on the same plate.

I have carved out the material for the second color and hope I made enough of the first color prints that I will have enough good ones on the second color run.  I think this one will be tricky to register as I don't really have any wiggle room on lining up the second color.

Here's what it looks like at this point.
