Hi Christina, and thanks a lot.  What did you mean about grit???

Something bugging me is that when I'm wiping the plate I get little
circles (when i'm wiping in circular motion), of darker streaks.  They
mostly show up in the darks, and when I wipe over it by hand I feel
little "gritty" stuff.  Anyone else?

(see I toldja i'd start in on some other imperfection right away)

Wow, Susan, have you progressed.  Plus your images are beautiful.

While you're working on smooth tones, I am working on deep, velvety blacks
and grit :)  Out in the sun.  I love it.

Makes me want to buy a press and not an Amergraph.
