I decided I wanted to experiment and add more circles to the background. I created another plate by gluing the circle texture to illustration board. I then coated it with a thin layer of gloss medium. I mixed a mauve color, inked and wiped the plate (with tarlatan), placed it on the dampened print and ran it through the press. Unfortunately I did not achieve what I was looking for so I tried using black ink. That worked better, but I thought the circles were too dark. So I went to stage four.
