Starting from an image put together from a photo of Esmond Elliot as a child, and another of a bronze statue of him.
A stencil / design for the project. 
The stencil / design transferred onto the tracing paper with a pencil.
The stencil, carbon paper and the board - transferring onto the board.
The stencil has been transferred. Time for curving!
Starting off with the parts that will remain white.
Curving for the first layer of colour is DONE!
The majestic Eagle Press on the premises of Glasgow Print Studio.
The roller has been fed with ink, then the ink rolled onto the wood.
The first layers of prints are done.
Now curving for the second layer. Everything that will be curved out now will remain blue. The bits left will be black. The plank has been dried from the excess of ink with a blue roll and left for few minutes to dry so we won't get dirty.
The plank is fed with the next colour and ready to be transferred to the dry prints.
Seeing the FINAL outcome!
Prints getting dry. One of the five finals on the left, and two ghosts on the right.
The final double layered print.
I managed to hide a wee number "7". Can you spot it?
One of the "ghost prints", which means that the plank is being pressed onto the thin paper without covering it with ink. So with ghost prints you basically get rid of the ink from the plank. This is to be done at the very end, when you are done with printing. Every next print will be lighter. It usually takes 3 to 5 ghost printings to clean the plank.
