Street Linocut B - Blue "No Niquita"

"No Niquita" - Street Linocut version b (17 copies). This time in Blue and oil-based Blockprint colors.

Problems with Wheatpaste and linocut consist in the fact that Wheatpaste dissolves blockprint - water based colors.
Experimenting I found out that blockprint OIL-BASED colors instead won't dissolve, while pose no problem in the transfer process from lino to paper.
The only trouble is they need much more time to dry... a 24hour drying is advised...
Another problem is that you'll have trouble cleaning both your ink roller as your ink applying surface, i advice powder detergent, since water alone just like Alcohol or even Acetone won't work.
