Wood Putty Fixes Woodcut Error

I wanted to post the results of my wood putty fix the other day. You can barely see the section that I repaired.

Here's a pic of the plate.

And here are my prints! This plate was created using the Epilog laser at MAKEatx. The image was from a 1-yr old linocut. I scanned a print (4 x 6), enlarged it, then engraved the image into a piece of shina plywood (McClains has the BEST wood. It printed perfectly opaque in areas where needed.), then inked up and printed as usual. I used Akua Intaglio Mars Black and Arches 88.
