Today I got started on the woodcut portrait of my dad. I printed off each layer separately, then transferred the first one (the lightest grey layer) onto my woodblock using acetone.
First I line up the block on the printed image and wrap the paper around the edges. I usually tape the paper in place to keep it from moving.
Rub rub rub.
Don’t want to peel away the whole thing at once–I pull back one corner to see if it’s transferring okay. That way if it isn’t dark enough I can put it back and keep adding acetone without shifting the paper at all.
