Water soluble oil paint does not make an adequate substitute for letterpress ink. You're welcome.
And wow, I already suck at this blogging thing. I've spent the last few weeks doing endless research, a little printing (!), and a LOT of thinking. Thinking about where I want this blog to go (a showcase for my work? a go-to source for all things letterpress? a random collection of verbal hemorrhages?), and thinking about where letterpress will take me. This weekend it's the National Stationary Show!!!
I've already been numerous times (for my day job) but this will be the first time going for ME!!! I'm excited to see it again though my own eyes, and not the eyes of what I think will please my bosses. I'm also hoping to meet some seasoned letterpressers and maybe pick their brains a bit, if they are not too busy.
I fully expect to be bursting with ideas come Monday. Yay!!!
