Trace Monoprinting

I've been enjoying doing some new trace monoprinting, can anyone give advice on leaving as little ink as possible on the paper apart from the lines that are drawn?

Perhaps I'm just heavy handed, I don't want so much of the ink on the areas that are not traced.

I'm using very smooth paper (various) with caligo safewash ink.

Thanks!

I would also be interested in this as I am just beginning a project!

Some people use a bridge tool of some kind to support their arm and hand. See this YouTube video https://youtu.be/8OzzLeErTA8. Have fun .
