Fisk and Fern gave me some really great advice on printing without a press and so I had a go.
Did you spot the not-so deliberate mistake on the red print? I played around, experimenting with acrylic paint and water based stamping ink. My art shop didn't have water based block printing ink and I can't be bothered faffing on with turps.
I'm glad I tried a negative image for the first go, as I am not sure my hands are steady enough to carve leaving thin lines in lino. On balance, I prefer using rubber, but if I want a big stamp, this definitely works.
