Copper Plates Ready to Print

One of the interesting moments in intaglio printing is how beautiful and luminous copper plates are when they are inked up and ready to print. Warm and reflecting, with black incised lines, ready to have the ink pulled out of the lines - it's always tempting to simply leave them inked up and beautiful.

 But then I remember that after I've printed them, I will always be inking them up again anyways. And now I have prints to colour and cut and fold too!
