Positive and negative masked monoprints

Negative print using positive mask:

I found using the positive mask easier as the process seemed more intuitive. Placing the mask was simpler as it was easier to handle.

My first print was again too pale as I did not use enough ink and think I did not spend enogh time burnishing the print to ensure the ink transferred properly from the plate.
