Etching lino again

Etching lino again, this time trying to make a figurative picture.

I painted a bird shape with varnish, and then etched the block. The solid black in the middle is where the varnish held on, and resisted the caustic soda; the soft gray around the outside is where the block was etched. The white bits within the bird shape are where the varnish didn’t resist the caustic soda.

Then I printed the block with a mask over the background.
And then on coloured backgrounds.
