2nd pull from hand press
I actually got a reversal of my small bird image by stamping the inked image onto some mylar and then transferring that to the plate. It worked great and made it a lot easier than carving another stamp. I used the same method to get the words to print in the right direction.
I also found a simple way to transfer my photo image to the stamp for carving. I placed a piece of the mylar over the photo and traced it in with a marker. I then laid the wet side down onto the carving material surface and rubbed it with my fingers to transfer the image. So much easier than trying to trace it off!
