I have put the first coat of PVA on my template.
Its all very experimental so we will just have to see if it works when I cover it with ink.
I do have one major problem!!!!! I haven't got a press..... I am going to try and put the inked up template and paper between to pieces of thin hard board and drive over it with my car tyres.
The other alternative is to use a much thinner paper and burnish with a spoon.
Update Wednesday night
