Deep impression…

Deep impression…

My aim with this little test was to see if the Adana could make a deep impression into the paper. This topic has been covered many times before and many variances on how to achieve this from soaking the stock to having no padding on the platen. One of the main issues of attempting this on a table top hand press is asserting too much pressure and shattering the castings. For demonstration purposes I decided to forgo ink and just go with blind impressions for this test.

The test I would say has been successful and for a deep impression slightly moisten the paper but be careful not to apply too much pressure as you may damage not just the type but also your press.
