New print block

 using insulation tape and clear (should have used coloured) nail varnish to resist the caustic soda and wallpaper paste mix.
 under a cling film cover so that in the hours that the etching takes place,it doesn't dry out.
 extra carving
 inked block
 first trial print
 and the reason to use coloured nail varnish...I thought that I'd cleaned it all off the block, but hadn't.  It needs further cleaning so that it prints properly
