Ran a zinc plate thru the press with fabric on the soft ground, and I got a pretty good impression, but I didn't etch it long enough. 4 minutes. Should have done 8 at least. I'll try printing it again today -- I was rushed on Monday at the end of class. But if I don't like it I'll re-etch it.
Don't know if I'll just run anothe piece of fabric/soft ground thru the press, or what. Have to see what Jim thinks.
