Design History:
The designs of the supplemental set are greatly simplified images typically of the same kinds of plants illustrated in the main series. The plants are shown as two primary silhouettes accented with highlight colors, one as an overlay on the other. One of these silhouettes (usually the backgrounded one) copies the composition of a particular main series design.

In wfx2 a silhouette of the entire clerodendron composition of wf35 is used as the background image, and the background itself is left uninked. The overlay image for wfx2 is an entirely new design of an orchid species not represented in the series.

The wfx2 design is printed in three colors: the background silhouette in pale lavender; the overlay silhouette (and accents on the background silhouette) in dull orange; and additional highlights on both in black. The overlay printing is partially translucent, and the underprinted color of the background shows through. These overlapping areas of color demonstrate that both parts were printed as complete (and independent) silhouettes.
