This is the first print. I'm a little rusty and wiped a bit too much. Won't take me long to get back the feel of things though

Hey Sass! Congrats on pulling your first print! It's lookin' good! Nicely rendered fur...Wow... It reminds me of the vermin sounds I hear in the walls at night while my cats sleep....Can't wait to see more!

Hi Sas, It's about time GREAT. The print is very cool. Is that an etching? How big is it? I am ready to go too, I ordered my lino from Blick should have it next week. I got all the other supplies last w.e.. I did my first mono print today, with the plexiglass plate, it came out good, I had to touch it up with a brush, and I shoud have used smoother, and thinner paper, but I am, satisfied, hey for the first time I can't complain.

Good Luck with the press, you've been waiting so long
, now you can press like mad.

Tony, this is a 6x6" aluminum plate that I hand etched (drypoint) with a whistlers needle. Printed on BFK Rives heavyweight.

Hello...I'm new here. So what kind of press did you buy? I'm looking to purchase a new press. Nice image of the cat print.

Welcome to the printmaking forum in any case! If you watch Ebay and Craig's list plus any local online classifieds you might find a deal on a used press.
