The thinner and more equally it is rubbed out on the ink-block the better, as it in a great measure prevents [[m:​monk|monks]] and [[f:​friar|friars]] in working. In fine works, where strong ink is used, the [[p:​pressman|pressman]] who beats should occupy his spare time in using the brayer, as it not only diffuses the ink more equably on the [[b:​blocks|block]],​ but causes it to Work better. ​
