Printing linoleum

I took some delay on printing linoleum plates for some months, so I spent 2-3 days printing these... I was in use to not print all, like for a 10 copies prints i did some and wait for selling to make more... Bad habit! So now everything is fixed! This also means there's no "10 copies" but a bit less (between 6 & 8). The other one step to follow rules is to make a certificate to get tax reduction, but I can't certificate my own activity as an artist, so what's the matter ? ;)
All these printed on Fabriano Rosaspina (except one on Ingres d'Arches) with etching ink, properly signed & numbered

Amazing stuff. Some of it reminds me of the late, great Tom Crites.

Using etching ink is a useful idea that i should try... For some reason oil-based ink has been discontinued here (you have to buy oil paint and mix it with some kind of medium, which sounds unnecesarily cumbersome to me).

its the best! its almost luxury, but nowadays its not that more expensive than usual one (at gerstaecker). Much much more easier to clean tools and plates and keep them neat for several prints. Then prints are more accurate and roll keep clean.
Its basically same oil based stuff but with grease/wax instead of resins
