I’ve been suited up like a chemical worker trying to etch that bloomin’ lino and guess what? Not a mark on the darned stuff! And that’s despite checking my methodology with Lesley Trussler’s detailed instructions. So on further examination I can conclude only that what I’m using isn’t actually the real thing – it’s an imposter masquerading as lino!

Back to square one: first, acquire real lino; second, start all over again.

I’m admiring the day outside instead of feeling frustrated

  1. You say “real” lino…what did you use? If it was that green/blue reversible kind that is a synthetic vinyl and probably resistant to the soda.
    Maybe your soda had lost some strength from age?
    But I chuckled as I read, so keep trying!

  2. Sara Ooops……….now I see what happened

    What a pain but……. all of us printmakers have been through this sort of fiasco at one time or another!!

    Never mind

    Maybe you will have another go , on another occasion
