Context: Dehner occasionally introduced color in her prints. The technique, learned at Atelier 17, was to ink the design in black and then apply a colored ink to the surface of the plate with a roller, using a stencil to keep the ink in specific areas. This method was used to print red in Montebanks with Charms, but such colored impressions are rare, since few were printed.Montebanks is a gambling game played with a special deck of 40 cards. Players bet against a banker on the color of cards to be turned up from the deck.
