Xmas Cards

Thursday, November 24th, 2011
































My xmas card printing went much more smoothly today when I switched from a water-based ink to an oil-based ink. I think it’s because the grey linoleum doesn’t like the water-based ink very much. The water-based ink was printing quite splotchy and I couldn’t fix it.

I then did a non-toxic cleanup using a 50/50 mix of vegetable oil and white vinegar (a great tip from friends at St. Michael’s). Works really well.

The next step is to add some spot colours using watercolours, I think. They’ll be up in my Etsy shop over the weekend.
