I SCORED a Gocco at the auction Tuesday night! I couldn't believe I got it so cheap. It's a never-used B6, complete with a cloth stamp kit.
And I got it all for 20 BUCKS.
I know--you all hate me.
But seriously, now I'm scared to use it, because it only comes with enough screens and bulbs to make 5 masters and what if I screw something up? Replacements are so expensive!
So I'm going patiently through my sketchbooks, trying to come up with the perfect image to make prints of. I think I'm going to do mostly prints of line drawings that I can go over with watercolor or other media. When I get some images together, maybe I'll post them here and let you guys vote on your faves. It'll be a collaborative effort!
I've never been much of a printmaker, I have no patience, but I've wanted a Gocco forever and I'm so glad to finally have one! There's no way I could have justified spending $150 on one, so I'm just so excited I got so lucky!
