"Does this stand in contrast with what Guy say? That is, that the print is a "two-colour" print (sumi+blue)."
Well, Guy might well be correct (that it was originally only a two-colour print)! I would guess differently, but it is just a _guess_. I can't really add much to what I said in my prior post about the colours:
"As can be seen by the images, the lines made by sumi is quite sharp, I think. This also goes for the japanese writings beside the signature."
Well, the black is generally sumi, and sumi contains elemental carbon. You could put that in a tanning bed turned up to high, and leave it for a week, and it will not fade! :-)
"I am too novise to say anything for certain with this one."
That's OK, the more experienced posters aren't totally certain either! :-)
