Deliveries across the pond
First, I am hearing that our friends in far away places are now receiving their blocks. With the current state of the world, that is really awesome news so I am very happy. More printmakers around the wide world getting busy and thinking about kindness. Truly amazing!
One more block gets cut
Two down, one to go. Keep up with all the daily progress here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/puzzlewoodcutprints/
I finished the first block last week and now done with the second, or should I say: "Fly and Now are ready to print!"
A little repair jobToday I started on the third block and it was one of those days when I just couldn't be careful enough. So! I take this opportunity to show my method for repairing this particular cherry plywood when the knife takes a slide.
Look for wood fillers that can be "sanded and drilled" after they cure.
|One of the areas that needed fixin'|
Fortunately, God invented wood filler
|This plastic "Wood Dough" is great for|
repairs, dries hard and quick
|Also needed, a flat or bullnose chisel and|
|First I carefully "shave" the excess filler|
from the offended area
|After sanding, I use my magic|
marker to re-draw the design. This step
also will show if the cut needs re-filling
|Ready to re-cut...CAREFUL! Maria...|
|Ah, there it is, good as new, never even|
know an accident happened
