Paper must also be cut to size.
Soak the paper and blot dry. The time for soaking varies depending on the weight of the paper. It should be damp through for printing.
Use a perspex or glass surface for spreading ink.
Roll out the ink evenly before rolling onto your printing plate. I was using an engraved copper plate as the test. Once the ink is rolled on the plate, it must be wiped off leaving the ink in the engraved lines on the plate.
Some experimentation is needed -- I started off on the most open setting (7) and there was not enough pressure on the plate.
I moved down to setting 3 and there was too much pressure, hence the crease in the paper. Though it is not as easy as I expected, I will do some more work on it -- I am pleased though with my new press!
