Creating a Reduction Woodblock Print
THE SIXTH COLOR RUN A third block, the Accent Block, is carved to print secondary or accent colors in the composition (fig 3-1, above left). At this point, very little of the block is left in relief after carving. The block was proofed for registration and then printed over the previous runs (fig 3-1a, above right).
