hee, like this lots and lots! so, you i did lino printing at secondary school, 12 years ago, once! but you inpsired me to give it another go, to make christmas cards! thanks! one question... i don't have a printing press, and i don't have a good memory from my school days, ...having cut the block, rolled out the ink on a glass panel (if i remember correctly!) and then onto the lino, am i better putting the paper on the lino and pressing down right? not lino on top of paper... any quick handy hints for elementary homemade lino printing? sorry, and thanks a lot, for the inspiration and eventual help! have a good day!

Thanks, I'm glad you like it!

And welcome aboard to linocut!

You are correct, put the paper on top of the inked block. A wide flat wooden spoon will work for applying pressure, or you might want to buy a baren - an inexpensive version should be available at a local art supply store - as it gives you wider, more even pressure. Let me know how it goes!!
