The number 2 seems to be the most frequent figure I post for End Grain. This particular 2 came from the modern poster lot, though it’s smaller than the majority and only has one or two matching figures that go along with it. It’s a variant on the really bulky industrial style 2 that I posted way back at the end of December. The outer corners are rounded while the counters are squared off.
Hitting this block with a splash of water produced this odd effect with the black ink. Some places pulled off, revealing more of the red block. Yet again, a red numeral! The two toned, spotted ink is a really unique attribute, I’m glad I could document it in this state, before it gets used and cleaned more thoroughly. It really is a brilliant texture.
