I am new in the printing bussiness and i need some help with the color separations.
I understand that i need to have an original painting or design in order to have the colors separations right..?....but i am very interested on printing protraits in grey tones and half tones....and my drawings are made by pencil....would that be possible..?...my questions is if the pencil strokes are dark enough to make the positives or what would it be the procedures to acomplish that....

The reason I asked is that you may be able to scan it in CMYK instead of greyscale. This way when you print it out you can use one of the CMY as your grey under color.

Also, in CorelDrawX3 under "bitmaps" you can go into "Image Adj. Lab" and there you will be able to add in Cyan Magenta or Yellow colors. If you turn up the Cyan then when you print out the seps. you will be able to set the printer to print Black and Cyan.

Let me know if this helps.:D

Please post an image here so we can see what you are dealing with. Once I see the art I can post specific information or a video on to how do this.
