THIRD EXPERIMENT

For my third experiment I utilised a previously carved piece of lino and tried paper and aluminium foil as grounds for embossing.  I found the paper was probably too heavy as the embossed marks did not register well.  I tried a diluted wash of blue to see if it would enhance the markings. I found the  aluminium foil from the kitchen drawer was easier to impress as it was thinner, and in most cases only required a firm rub with a soft cloth.
