adventures in rolling pin printing

Whale Song
14x8 inches

This took FOREVER to get a good print from, mainly because the press I have does not like blocks that are more than 1/4 of an inch thick. I spent so many hours trying everything I could possibly think of, and almost gave up. As a last resort, I asked one of my roommates if she had a rolling pin, and she did! I've been spoiled in the past and never really printed anything by hand, but it was this or nothing. Surprisingly, it worked really well, with the help of a little wooden spoon action. Sadly, I used a lot of paper trying to get it to work, so I only got a few printed before I ran out. I'm hoping a second edition of it will happen soon.
