in which our plucky heroine becomes a bit of a block head...
My first attempt at printing one of my hand carved lino blocks: cuff bands to be applied to Farbjorn's tunic . Although... I can see where the spaces between the upper and lower motifs are quite uneven... better next time, I hope!
homemade fabric paint stamp pad instead of rolling out the ink and applying it to the block using a brayer, and as you can see, it works a treat! Wouldn't be good for a large block, but for this 2"sq design, it is much faster than rolling out and transferring ink. I can see where I went off on the second row of motifs... next time, do not start at the very end, but with one motif *centered* between the upper ones. Now I do not feel quite so bad about dropping the block onto the other cuff band.
