  1. i am doing an edition of a simple two block linocut. I am unsure wether i should make the fabriano paper damp before printing? Would the paper stretch while wet when printing 1st block,then dry. then when i print 2nd block should I rewet paper. I will be using oil based inks and a press.
    thank you for a brilliantly informative website and I will certainly take lots of advice from your tutorials.. Carol

    1. Hi Carol, Sorry for the late reply I missed your comment earlier 😦 I usually print one colour with oil based ink & never wet the paper. I know for other methods which use water based inks & washes in layered multiblock or reduction blocks they do dampen the paper. Sherie York’s blog http://brushandbaren.blogspot.com.au/ you’ll find a wealth of information on this different form of linocuts 🙂
      kind regards
      Lyn
