Thank you so much, the tip on the ink was much needed.What is the name of the oil?
In terms of rollers, for the hard ones I can see suppliers such as Lawrence Art Supplies offer felt, Durathene, or rubber. Is there any particular material preferable for a firm roller?
In terms of the printing medium, I have ordered some muslin fabric for the cyanotype, but perhaps should also invest in some tissue/newsprint for the actual relief prints. I will definitively try using household fabrics to see what results they yield!
One more technical question about preparing the paper for the relief printing (with lightweight paper)
Should I soak my papers or spray them before printing?
