Experimenting at EcoTruc

Donald Farnsworth uses a blowtorch to test a new technique at EcoTruc in Oakland

This morning, Magnolia's Donald Farnsworth headed across the street to EcoTruc to test a new experimental printmaking technique.

Thanks to Jerry Kung, who rebuilds old trucks with new electric motors at EcoTruc, for facilitating this test.

Even though today's test was "so far, so bad," the technique has great promise and experiments will surely continue!
