I had some design ideas for cards that I wanted to test out, but I don't know enough about linoprinting to make even fields of color. I've gotten nice impasto which works well on some designs, but not everything I want to make will look good that way. I'm using speedball's waterbased inks on a butcher tray with a soft rubber brayer.
Here's the best of my impasto ones:
Can anyone give me some tips? I've done internet searches and looked up videos on youtube, but there's something that I'm just not getting. Incidentally, I started using my brayer to load rubber stamps with ink and it works really well if you want a nice, light clear print. I used to have a lot of trouble getting good results with larger rubber stamps, but the brayer has solved that for me.
