Mystery Face... How Uncanny

No matter how many times I get poor print results, I can't seem to help carving out my lino images as if they're etchings. Today's project - carving an face image to accompany my short story - followed this pattern. The block looked good, but the resulting prints were too splotchy and messy.

They have a bit of a haunting charm, but I really would love to get one clean print from this style of block.


  1. Although it is fitting that you can't quite pin down this face.

  2. My mom said the same thing. Maybe they're not so bad after all... :)
