I always tell students in the workshops I teach, "what
your original looks like is what you will get". It's
not gona look any better than that so if the original
is so-so your prints will be as well. You can get
pretty fine lines. Play around with the photocopy etc.
Have fun. I do enjoy mine. I was interested by the
