Hello everyone,

I'm doing a study for my exchange print, which will have some thinner colors
than I've tried to print before. I read David Bull's One-Point Lesson #24,
which suggests mixing a small amount of color with paste on a tile. Are there
any other tricks? This will be my starting point, but I'm a little worried
about getting too much paste in the paper since I'll overprint several layers.

Also, Mike's almost-traditional hanshita method worked great on the study
print blocks. The glue under the top ply was much less brittle than with the
heat transfer technique and I could cut finer detail without chipping out.
