I am so thrilled for our Dave Bull and his wonderful success on kick starter....not that I am thrilled to pay more for the work but glad it is finally getting the money it deserves....I always knew it was a deal and a half at the "old" prices!
It was beyond fun to watch the numbers grow on Kickstarter and the over 300K finish is just amazing and beyond anyone's wildest dreams.
Go Dave, Go Jed....
Marketing is what Dave's work has always needed here in the USA, a closely held secret that now has been let out...and hundreds of folks will now be able to appreciate having a real woodblock print!
The old list is ending soon and the new one taking over....I will love seeing everyone have their own folder for their artwork...this is going to be a lot of fun.
My best to all

I'm having trouble signing up, I can get in through FaceBook, but when they ask for to create a profile it just goes back to the FaceBook log in, I tried many times :(
maybe I can't catch this train

Go straight to the Yahoo message board:

Subject: Clearing the Block
Posted by: Sharri

Carving the actual pattern is always fun and you can get to that zone where time doesn't exist anymore and you are one with the wood.  Awakening from this trance and having to face the boring and repetitious part of clearing away whatever you don't want to print can be absolutely brutal.  I wonder if it could be fatal to an older, arthritic person?  (Maybe we don't want to know the answer to that question.) On this block there is quite a bit of clearing away of unwanted wood and it is a rather hard wood (cherry) so it could be a daunting task, however - not in this case because it is Foredom to the rescue.  Foredom is a power tool much like a Dremel on steroids.  It has a flexible cable and interchangeable bits.  One cable is for etching, engraving, etc. and is what I used on the copper piece (see previous posts) and the other cable is for more like a chisel.  The clearing requires the latter.  You can see the tool head next to the block -

This was cleared in about 1/4 of the time it would have taken me to do it with the regular chisel (sitting next to the power head in this photo) and my hand would have ached for hours.  Not to . . .
