Makeshift Letterpress

Using a flatbed press intended for the Intaglio process, I rigged up a way to make a letterpress print. It was rather simple. I etched my design into a piece of MDF, taped it to the bed, inked it up and rolled it through. Worked like a charm. I could definitely work on my process to get better, more consistent results, which is something I probably will do. Anyway, it was a fun experiment.
