A few weeks back, I purchased some linocut board to experiment with, since two of my projects will be focusing on carving and relief printing. I created a fairy - nothing fancy - this was purely for experimental sake.
With my carving and several papers in hand, I headed down to the very impressive print shop here at the Uni. A veritable staff of experts works down there ready to help as needed. Mark Fenning took me under his wing and spent an amazing amount of time with me showing me what to do.
First was mixing the ink with an extender and a magnesium (?) thickening agent.
