Any tips on transferring a design onto lino would be greatly appreciated!
Its been years since I last tried lino printing, so I am very rusty!!
Thanks!  Smiley

My process is probably more complicated than it needs to be, but it works pretty well for me.

First I draw out the design using dark ink.  Then I trace it onto tissue paper with a pencil.  Finally, I tape it to the lino and go over the design heavily with a fine dark sharpie marker.  The sharpie ink goes straight through and leaves a good representation of the original design on the block.  The only drawback is how uneven the lines can be, but I'd never carve away without my original design to refer to, anyway.

I'm sure there are other methods, as well.

Ok thanks! That sounds like a good technique, I'll give it a try.
Thanks heaps!  Smiley

carbon paper. Smiley

Put it (blue side down) between the piece of paper with design on it, and lino, and trace away with a ball-point pen. Thin, even, dark blue lines.

Can be re-used, too Smiley
