Shadow of the Thread、糸の影

I etched the shadow of the thread by soft ground. While etching the plate, some parts on the top left and around the scissors which should be white, were also accidentally etched. And I was shocked to find it when I printed it out. I fixed them by varnishing the plate today. My hands are still in pain. In the picture of the two images I tried the different colors.
ソフトグランドで糸の影を板に腐食させました。仮刷りしてみたら腐食して欲しく無いとこ、例えばハサミの周りの光が当たっている所まで黒くなっていて、ショック!その修正、銅版の凹凸をつぶしていく作業を今日一日やって、手が痛いです。写真は赤い糸の色と全体の色を違うインクを使って刷ってみました。クリックすると拡大写真が見れます。

they look great, i'm more partial to the black image (my favorite colors black, white, and red...) hope your hands are feeling better!

It looks something ...a kind of mysterious or ... I don't know how to say. I just love it.

Hi joseph,
I made them for the experiment. I like the black one too. Thanks!
