its like a glue..apply it on the wood surface  to use..apply lightly all over surface area of image ...then use a  image without text...(cause it will be backwards) it until very flat..let dry for 1 hr...then place a very damp wood on the paper for 10 minutes..then gently rub with the clothe on the paper that's wet (lightly) it should remove the pulp off leaving the ink directly on the those tattoos when we use to lick them for a vineyard…

Thanks Man for the Comments, well you ask me,I do like your recording stuff,but when i listen whit my JimmyMc Carty Ears:   Nice Intro! (For me;could bee longer the revers bit,and fade slowly to the Background) Good Beat! Nice Dubble Bass Cool change in the CBG effect color on the Gitaar ,the Old Mic Effect, does the trick,but the Vocals can bee a bit more on the front,your singing something let us hear it! then you get the story better, What it is about the busker girl, and why you sing about her, like it like it a lot!! thanks! Melo!
