After the trials of the past few weeks during which we lost yet another member of the family (mum-in-law this time) and all the disruption that followed...I'm once again able to pick up my burins and carve.
I bought a mixed bag of small endwood offcuts from Lawrences, to enable me to develop my style and skills without breaking the bank. (Boxwood is very expensive.) These pieces are uneven in size and thickness, but with a press capable of height adjustment of the roller, along with some packing I should be ok.
Above is a block ready to proof; one of my wobbly blocks. I hope to print tomorrow.
