I'm new here and this is my first post, if this type of question has been up before I'm sorry!
I've just started with linocut and I have problem keeping ink on the plate when I shall print. I use softcut plate and ”Schmincke ink for linoprint” (waterbased). I roll the roller with ink, as I learn on printmaking classes and get that sound that you can look after. But when I roll the plate the ink immediate start to dissapear. I have attached a picture so you can see. I've tried to print a couple of prints anyway just to see if the ink gets better but it still dissapears! And the print areas where it supposed to get black just don't get black at all. What do you think is the problem and what can I change? I'm very happy for any tip!
