Test Print -- Press

Ok, this isn't too bad.  Recarving really helped.  Also I think my pressure was too high on the press yesterday.  Alignment seems to work.  I'm getting happy.  8-]

Not sure I care for the pinky-looking chop tho.  Maybe I'll go back to blue.

Looks great! So you totally recarved new blocks? wow :)

Oh no! I just meant I carved over all the elements and made them more prominent. It's a flaw of mine. I carve too lightly sometimes. I don't know what to call that but recarve, tho I can see it's misleading.

ok, i understand now :) I don't carve deep enough sometimes, too. Gets frustrating to have to wait for the wood to dry and to carve it deeper.
