Senshafuda Project - more paper sizing
Posted by Dave Bull at 8:49 AM, April 13, 2011 [Permalink]
As mentioned in the previous post, it's going to be my job to size the paper for this first set of senshafuda, and today was the day!
This photo is a bit of déja vu, as the sizing procedure here is getting kind of routine!
Tetsui-san preferred the 'both sides sized' samples from the batch we did together last week, so my work was doubled ... And once the stack of 100+ sheets was done, upstairs into the drying room they went:
Today was a clear and sunny day, so I kept the windows up there closed except for the smallest of cracks, and they dried very smoothly, in just a couple of hours.
As for the carving progress, Sato-san called yesterday with a couple of small questions about details of the design. Seems he's moving along as scheduled, and we should be ready for the first proofing session soon ...
