Holding and protecting the print during spotting

A small piece of painter’s tape in each corner holds the print in place without risk of damage. A clean handkerchief does duty as a place for my hand to rest. I’m left handed so I start in the top right corner and work my way to the left and downward. Above the print you can see the spotting brush (a cheap 10/0 spotter which I shall soon replace with something less crappy), clean water brush (a 10/0 round type, this one doesn’t need to be very exact so cheap and crappy works perfectly well), ink, water and a post-it pad used to blot up excess ink from the brush, adjusting the tone laid down.
