This ink wash was done in the Bustard Islands but could have been done anywhere on the east side of the bay.
After spending big bucks on engraving tools and a press, one that hurts to move even short distances, I read in the November 1946 issue of Popular Mechanics that I’d wasted my money.
It explains how to sharpen the nibs of straight pens into engraving tools and how to print using just my shoe. Not sure if I need a shoe like the one pictured but, if so, I might find it near the loud plaid jackets at the Extreme Vintage store.
For some reason that escapes me I had a big sheet of a very nice pink print paper but it was getting wrinkled. With a process called ‘chine colle’ I cut it up and glued it to sturdier paper then engraved and printed a Bullarina on it.
It’s titled “When cows dream…an evening at the Bullshoi” and was a hit with two young friends.
