I thought I would end todays long overdue splash of blog activity with some current work. This block is a material called "Resingrave". It is inferior to wood for much of my really detailed work but I do like it for larger and looser things as it is relatively inexpensive and does engrave well, especially the newest formula.
This project is a fairly loosely observed sketch of part of our garden. It is nearly ready to proof now so I will keep you up to date with its progress. Even with the broader treatment I am giving the marks, I stll keep the magnifying glass handy to inspect the tiniest areas.
