Used engine oil suminagashi print.

Perhaps, after all, the most obvious connection between the used old engine oil and its origins in trees is in the tree ring effect that suminagashi is so famous for.

This print was created using the technique, but with old engine oil, instead of ink, and soap.

More experiments would be necessary to heighten the depth of colour.

The simplicity of this pleases me.
