Printing at last!


A card window, while inking, then a balsa wood frame , matching the thickness of the lino. This is so that the card doesn't get distorted in the press.

The card placed carefully...

A wool felt mat for even pressure

Sepia on cream card for a change
And some square cards.
I tried a few parcel tags with a Field Maple print...they look ok, so I will make some small blocks with different leaves and trees.

A productive day...and Pirate made lunch (after riding his bike on the turbo trainer because it was cold outside!) and supper!!

To get things absolutely right takes time, expertise and patience which you have obviously got. Anything badly framed looks awful and just detractw from all the hard work which has gone into producing what you are framing in the first place. Excellent pictures and beautifully framed.

How nice to see old friends being reproduced.

The sepia looks good.
