Letter Press Experiments

Today I made a lot of experiments in relation to our final anthology. I started my process in laser cut by cutting some designs from my 10 sketches;I ended up doing another two laser cuts which was a more detailed fist and a illustrative drop cap because they were relevant sources from my research and the fist from before was very abstract and I wanted it to be made clearer. 
I then moved onto letter press where I turned my laser cuts into stamps, I created small prints from samples I got from GF Smith and I love the outcome of these prints because some of them work great with the textured paper and it gives my designs an extra boost in how far I can experiment with them. To keep in mind when I printed onto the shiner pieces of paper, it took a very long time for the ink to dry so I had to be very careful not to get any smudges!
