Re: Mangle conversion
First thanks for all the compliments, well here are 3 pics done on it,
1st is water based ink printed on dry paper
2nd is an oil layer printed over the water based layers on dry paper
3rd is water and oil based ink printed on paper soaked in water for about 5 mins.
My conclusion is i would need to use dampened paper to print successfully, probably with a fair bit of ink. The mylar and felt roll through the press well, so a couple more layers of felt placed incrementally may up the pressure as well.
If i wanted to get the press to a professional level the upper roller would need a proper pressure system, not the spring system currently used.
Anyway have a good one, Isaac.
