'Meteoric Power' Woodblock Print
To finish this design, we had to use our most powerful tactics yet! We combined Materia of Double Carving Detail, plus Triple Hairstyle Booster. We think the final effect is Stunning x100!
This print requires many individual impressions to achieve a full range of color. David uses the finest quality of yamazakura (mountain cherry) to carve his printing blocks. The wood is capable of holding a very fine level of delicacy – every last detail is printed by the wood left standing, after the rest has been cut away.
The paper is handmade Echizen Hosho Washi, made by national living treasure, Iwano Ichibei IX. This is the exact same paper printers used over 200 years ago! You can see a video of Mr. Iwano at work here.
This print is in the traditional koban format – 7 x 9 inches (17.5 x 23 cm).
