to take ceramic stain images from lino block relief cuts. This is =
relatively strong so long as it does not become wet with water, so you =
need to work with an oil or varnish medium. Dressmaking tissue seems a =
lttle stronger. I am sure I would use either of these for any etched =
images as well.
