Putting the black down after an overnight drying. Went on much easier.
We had to lay the black on fairly heavy to cover the gold where the overprint, so the debossing and trim has yet another day to go. We did the make-ready for the debossing on some test prints (there's some ink smudging, which is exactly why we need to wait to finish the actual prints) so you can get an idea of what the technique is. It will look much nicer on the soft, cotton paper of the real print.
