A Secondhand Heat Press

I picked this up off an auction site and am now waiting for Jane Dunnewold's June course to begin. She uses a heat press to create her eco prints. There are plusses and minues with this. The big plus is that instead of steaming for at least 90 minutes, the prints can be made in 3 and you have more control over your composition. The downside is that you are limited to the size of the printing plate. I also want to do more with the Haf Weighton style prints with altering photos and heat setting them on fabric. I took lots of photos of mailboxes at the end of roads with the thought of creating a piece called "The Mail Comes to the End of the Road. All good winter projects once my Autumn clean up and cut back in the garden has been achieved.
