Sometimes pre-inking the stencil works and sometimes it doesn't. Today I was trying to figure out why. It is the balance of water in the ink, plate and air. I think. When the ink won't release from the stencil on to the plate the easiest thing to do is mix that ink with one that does release. I have a couple of cans of very sticky ink and I am experimenting with leaving the lid off, to see if I can dry the ink out. As I got a little frustrated this morning, I had to remind myself to go with the flow. Let Go and have some fun. Do you like my new app? PicFrame I think I am going to enjoy it.
