Newbie asking daft questions
Iíve recently started printmaking. (I was very fortunate to have found an etching press that needed a new home).
I have successfully produced work in a workshop and produced good prints from Lino cuts. However, when I try and print using various inked up plates with stencils, the paper either slips or gets stuck on the plate and tears. I also seem to not have a enough ink applied. (Should I be using an ink extender..?)
I use damp paper and Intaglio oil based inks. Does anyone have any ideas why this might happen? Many thanks in advance!
