What a neat and simple idea for a pattern! tie string tightly around a block of wood, dip lightly in ink and press to the paper using different, alternating directions. This will give you a "basket weave" effect when you're done.
Always a great feeling to finish carving the blocks to a series of designs! Looking forward to printing a small edition of this crow in black and gold on mulberry paper along with the others in the set! Love to ink
