Let’s just see how this plays out…

I’ve been wanting to try this for a long time, but getting past the gatekeeper that guarded the etching press that’s sitting idle at UOP had proven problematic. The problem mostly being that the gatekeeper is a complete bitch, ( I guess some see granting access to a community resource as a small game of “king of the hill”).

So when Jess dropped her press that she just pulled off the mountain top into place downtown, I knew now was the moment I’d been waiting for.

The plan is simple. Use the plastic remnants left over from cutting out paper stencils to block in a design. Soak a sheet of watercolor paper and use the press to emboss the design into the sheet. Simple…

… and it worked!!!
