That reminds me of our copy paper years ago here in IL. It used to get wavy. For some reason it doesn't anymore. Our copy techs would tell us that we had to put it in the machine right-side up. ??? How ridiculous, since we could make 2-sided copies. Thanks for bringing back some memories.

What, and risk having your stamp fly away!?

Not if you put the sticky side down.

Having purchased a print from LROSEM as a shameless gift for myself, I can tell you that her skills are amazing and totally worth checking her pages out! They are some real inspiration on what a talented carver can do. I can only aspire to gain her detail in my images!

In ga we also have some crazy humidity. I often stick stuff in my gas oven and let the pilot light take care off it. Leave the oven light on or use a sticky note so you dont cook whatever it is. Works great on log books it you seperate pages first.

Holy cow, more memories. Years and years ago I had a friend who dried her jeans in the oven. Totally forgot. I'm getting so old.

Good video!

I have no idea why she wets her paper. Unless she is sizing it. We do that for darkroom printing, but not usually for lino printing.

And why on earth would she put the finished product against newsprint? Her print is beautiful, but I would not trust newsprint. It could soil her work. Brown butcher paper would be safer.
