lino experiment

 Tools!  Marigolds are the kitchen gloves..good protection,along with apron and specs.
 Recipe, and sample blocks...time in minutes...
I need better wax crayon to resist.. cheap £1 packet wasn't going to be brilliant!
However buying stopping out varnish this early on wasn't a good idea.

Possibly a stronger caustic solution, possibly a longer etching period....and more patience! Some people use spray on oven cleaner!

I think I can call this a qualified success.

If its anything like my silk painting efforts, it's probably trial and error and a lovely surprise sometimes.
