New press!

Polymetaal HPV-60

I bought my first press! Have been on the lookout for a second hand one for a couple of years now. I am the third owner. Still very much in perfect condition. I can’t find any signs of a manufacturer, though it seems to resemble the Polymetaal HPV-60.

The first test print (contains a possible christmas-card spoiler) came out beautifully. Good tools produce better results. The mangle that led me to this has from today been demoted.

Clavicle boost

620x700

This project came to be the winter of 2014/15. A longing for change, for manual labour, a hobby, a substantial pastime. First, the plan is to explore (and ideally get better at) relief printing, essentially linoleum- and woodcut.

The initial setup for this site was all done one-handed, due to an unfortunate bike ride that ended with my left clavicle fracturing.
