Day eight… and I’m still adjusting to the pace of this project. It takes about four hours a day before I get to the computer.
I start with the roller and matrix and try to do more than 99, because there will be days I cannot make elephants. Including the ones I made this morning, I have 892. Once the paint is dry, I count them and stamp them and number them and record them in my book. Then I sort them into piles of Ready and Not-so-ready. The second pile I go through and adjust or add to the image with paint or ink. The last thing is painting and cutting the paper for the next day.
This is the number and the stamp that goes on the back of each elephant.
