This is the first print off the block today. From this print I have determined that the pressure on the etching press is a bit uneven. I need to lower the roller a bit on the side with the raised arm. Once it is adjusted, the ink will be more even.
The blue tape on the block is to cover up where my brayer dipped into the carving. I will remove it and carve the ink off, then be more careful while inking .
