I'm thinkin' that's the main culprit Carolyn. As for depression of lines
and such, I did basically everything everyone said. The material's not THAT
challenging to figure out, but I'm thinkin while the Nasco Ink I use is
ideal for plastic etches where paper is wet and put thru a heavy press with
the wool padded blankets, etc., its perhaps too tacky or not conducive to
these simply print methods. I believe I have a few speedball tubes of ink
lying around and will experiment with that. I'm wondering if even some
acrylic paint might not work if done quickly...thanks
