bjeans,
Thank you so much for your quick reply. After evaluating your response, I think it probably IS the paint that I am using... just the cheap acrylic craft paints, that I have heard "works well". Maybe I will try the Liquitex and Golden paints although they are costly and I do this technique a lot! So yes, I am using acrylic paints only, and NOT glossy paper. I have tried white paint and leaving the paint on the plate for a longer time, after burnishing, and found that the paint dried too much and the paper actually stuck to the plate and tore. I have cleaned the plate well and started from there. I agree with you about Patti Tolley Parrish, and love her prints, especially the " crusty bits" prints! I will persist until I find the right combination of supplies and technique! I really appreciate your feedback.....
