Another Cap Popped!

I had a chance to get to printing the final color of the second bottle cap over this past weekend.
Overall, I'm please with the way this one progressed and turned out despite shop temperatures barely fit for printing. Mounting the linoleum to a backing board vastly improved registration, wash-up and overall carving and handling. It seems like this one took longer than usual to wrap up but that's the beauty of not having stress.
Here are the pics:

As I've done in the past, I've decided to mix the redish color on the fly, making each one a little different. Some are a little lighter red, some darker; I think it adds to the individuality of the prints and printmaking.
Oh and if you're curious, learn more about the beer here.


  1. I was pleased to hang this one in a place of honor in my apartment. Cheers :)

    1. Thanks Mikey! I often think about the friends that have given caps and introduced me to finer beer for inspiration.
