|Wood engraving, olive wood. Oil relief ink on Japanese paper.|
As I expected, the difficulties I had printing my little wood engraving were due to the etching ink I was using (too soft) and the poor quality relief ink I had tried that didn't have enough pigment or body.
This rolled out easily and was easy to print with a baren onto a variety of dampened printing and Japanese papers.
I'll print up a few more copies before retiring this little trial block.
I'm sharpening my burins and spitsticker for the next project and ready to try another block.
