When there's no Ctrl Z

I use white out to work out the kinks on my relief prints. I doctored a proof of King Henry VIII to see where I still needed to carve. I like incidental marks but he was looking a little too incidental. The white out helped me figure out what I needed to carve.

Here's an unaltered proof:

Here's one with my Pentel Fine Point Correction Pen:

King VIII is already targeted to those that are subscribed to my art of the month club, but I have a few extra proofs if you would like one of your own. I'm cooking up an idea where I can get the ditty "King Henry the VIII to 6 wives he was wedded..." in the print somehow--maybe with a side-by-side second plate. More on that soon!
