Goldfish Linocut

Continuing with my goldfish obsession, I made some prints of this guy.

I pulled about 3 dozen and I have about 8-12 usable ones. The rest are too light or patchy. I tried several different papers and 2 different brayers before I realized that the problem was that I wasn't using enough pressure. After a quick internet search, I tried burnishing with the back of a wooden spoon. Worked like a charm! Thanks internet!
