Hope this helps someone...

>I set out last night to oil 20 bowls and vases at once. This is the first time doing so many for me, usually only one or two at a time.
Anyway, the mistake I made was using newspaper on my bench under the work.
I learned that if you allow wet (oiled anyway)items to set on the newspaper long enough, the ink will transfer. What a mess!
I used acetone to try to remove the ink, got most but not all, but did raise the grain. Doh!
I wouldn't suggest that anyone try this at home.
