why...

..won't the urethane dry -- it's not that humid...

it's been about 12 hours now
maybe I put on too much at one time??
well, I'll see how it goes tomorrow -- or later today, since it's already almost 4:30am
perhaps I should go to bed

Re: especially after you ink it...

if you can make a print work with black and red, it'll work no mattah whut

Re: especially after you ink it...

yeah, Mary -- well I already tried an A/P with red, black block ink and some yellow screen ink ... yuk!!
was it you that said the plate itself might be interesting? it is -- hell of a lot better than the print -- could really use access to a press -- using a spoon as a burnisher just doesn't do the trick -- maybe I could just jump up and down on the plate/paper...or maybe run over it with the car :)

Re: especially after you ink it...

ya, spoon burnishing is sucky

small, affordable relief press, check it out

also, Dick Blick should have some lovely oil-based printing inks in many colors (I used to use the Litho inks and add magnesium for body)

Re: especially after you ink it...

that does look like a cool little press
and there is a Blick store around 25 miles from here
Dearborn, MI, I think -- though I do have their catalog (someplace in my junk)
and yeah, Blick is one of the best low cost suppliers
when I was teaching art (seems like another lifetime) I ordered a lot of the supplies from them

Re: especially after you ink it...

and you just gotta luv that name!

..it certainly is a cool name -- might be cooler if it were Dick Flick, but hell, that's just my weird sense of humor :)
