I hope you don't mind if I chime in on the paper size issue. Someone
mentioned the high price of paper as being the big expense. I must
disagree. The biggest expense I encounter is the time I spend in planning
the print, the carving and the time spent in printing. Sometimes I do slide
on the type of paper I use, in order to keep costs under control, but
nothing ever goes to waste. The drop is used in other prints, sometimes
allowing me to work out an image to fit what I have. I find it a challenge,
and quite fun. Keep the sizes consistent, please.

All the best.

Hi Rick,
I'm also new to the group.
I live in Birmingham. I graduated from Brooklyn College in painting but printmaking has since become my passion. I like to work with copper in a tradition sense using new non toxic methods.

Subject: Transfering Cartoon
Posted by: Ellen Shipley

I got some transfer paper with my blocks.  It's waxy on both sides and is reusable.  It runs thru the printer and then you rub it onto the block.  Smudges easily, as I discovered, but it really worked very well.  Much easier than my usual chalking-the-back and tracing system.
