Today we did the Lino letter press work 2. Last time we used carbon paper and press machine, today we used the acrylic paint and roller. Choose the lino letters and paint colour what we like and then paint the lino letter by roller. It was hard work because of the smell and the paint was on the clothes 😦 but it was interesting work!!
