Greetings white/black line lovers.
I used round (German) housepainter and hog hair brushes for the experiments and Akua inks mixed with gouache colours to tone down them down. I can only afford the primary colours : Akua colours are very expensive in UK.
Looks like I will have to postpone my experiments with the white/black line techniques. It's well below zero in my small studio and even the inks are refusing to be squeezed out of their tubes. I'll try after Christmas. Meanwhile, has anyone thought of using the whiteline cuts as intaglio by pushing the ink into the gouged lines, cleaning the surface of the block and printing the filled lines.... or even colouring the surface and print both?
With that suggestion some Bareners would now recommend I seek cover!
All the best
