Small Fish Prints

So a while back I ordered a different kind of linoleum composite to try out for printmaking and I'm sad to say that I don't really like it all that much. It's harder to cut than the stuff I was using before (though still not as hard as true battleship linoleum) and it's more likely to curl it's edges under which makes printing hard. I'm currently drying a couple blocks under a heavy weight to see if I maybe can press the curve out, but I'm not exactly holding my breath. It also seems more sensitive to ink consistency than the stuff I was using before. I was trying out a new ink that turned out to be WAY waterier than I'm used to, and that stuff printed even more poorly than the ones in this picture. hmmmm. I will still figure out a way to use them up and work with them. I hope.
