This week I began the process of carving the blocks for the poppies triptych. I enlarged my drawing using a photocopy machine. I then traced the image onto frosted mylar. I like using frosted mylar because it’s transparent and takes the pencil line very well. Once traced, I use a ball baring baren to rub the image onto the wood block – including the kento for registration.
