Monkey of the Inkpot **Process**
This is the second try on the monkey of the inkpot. We'll see how it goes. I want him to consist only of words, but i don't want to do that much piercing. I'm trying to etch it. Last time, the resist didn't last long enough to etch the whole way through. This time I used primer, and scratched it off the bits between words.
