The first step on the wallpaper development journey is preparing the design to be engraved onto the metal cylinder that it will be printed with. My designs are tonal, meaning they are printed with lots of variations of the same colour. The best print method for this is something called gravure.
The gravure cylinders are so beautiful but I probably wont get to see this one this time as I won't be going to the factory for colour day as usual due to covid. Here is a link to a post about the Paper Meadow gravure cylinder if you are interested to see.
Once I approve these digital proofs they will then be etched and then the cylinder will be sent to the wallpaper factory ready to test the colours.
We will be doing colour testing towards the end of the month and it will go to print in the third week of September. I can't wait to see it on the wall :)

This one reminds me of The Fairy Feller’s Master Stroke (love the painting and the song and this wallpaper!)Lejla
