Day 18 Change of pace to graphite rubbing of block

Today, I thought I'd change things up a bit. I love doing rubbings, have done my share of gravestone rubbings in this historical region, and this is a small one.  It's a carved wood block I made for printing.  Rubbing done with graphite stick.  I've also made this in stitching black on white cotton fabric.  As well as printing out the image on paper.

This is where it pays to have thin paper to work with.  It lends itself to rubbing very well.  And this plain old printer paper is sturdy enough not to tear in the process.
