Pressure print, day 3

I'm getting warmer still. Here I'm peeling off more layers of paper. You can see the hawk shape in the lower left corner of the paper:

With the light shining through it, you can see the different thicknesses in the parts of the image:

And here's the result. I think I must've worked on the plate more after I took the photo above.

I had a hard time getting a completely even print. I printed just the solid block many times, trying to get all the unevenness worked out, but never really could. So I just went with it.

Since making this proof, I've removed even more paper from the plate. Although, I'm thinking, there must be an easier way to print this. And I'm hoping that the plate will last though the print run of 50.
