I am sorry to give you wrong information, Arthur Wesley Dow is not about white line wood cut, if you want a good book on it look for one by Blanche are some websites for you to look at
there is lots of info on Blanch Lazell on the web.
If you put in white line printmaking into the google search on the baren home page there is info in the archives on it as well.
Also, when you respond on the list, delete all the extra info at the bottom or people will get the whole digest over and over and see the problem, it can get to be a really long email.
Best to you,

[Baren] Daily DigestHi Jennifer,

Dick Blick has a small etching press for about $500. The one I have is similar. It's a no-name press with a 13" x 24" bed. It does a good job on small prints. Sure I would like a bigger one, but alas, no budget for it and no room for it. Actually, the one I have is light enough so that I can take it to a classroom and print on it if I want to. It's good for demonstrations of non-toxic printmaking. I actually prefer to hand print with the back of a wooden spoon, but I have known people who print large prints on a finely calibrated large etching press with oil-based ink. Seems to me that water-based ink would dry before you could get it through the press.

It occurred to me that safety glasses might be more important than a breathing mask when working on Plexi with a Dremel.
