Concentrating on starfish I was looking specifically at textures created on the plate, I used a range of dots, lines and scrambling all in fine minute detail.
Putting the piece together involved a wash for the main plate using relief inks which involved a lot of trial and error to get it right. Plenty of extender was the key! Using plates with lots of texture on and creating a mind map of sorts on the paper revolving around the starfish resulted in a strange but in my opinion aesthetically pleasing print. The complimentary colours is a definite plus in my opinion!
