Engraving the lettering

I have darkened my resurfaced pearwood block with a little writing ink and transferred my design (in reverse!) ready to cut.

Yesterday the weather was so gorgeous I couldn't resist sitting outside in the garden to start on the lettering at the top. I'm going very very slowly as I don't want to make any slips. The pearwood is beautiful to engrave.

Here's so far:

And a detail of the lettering. The large letters are 4mm high and the small ones 2.5.
