The Art of Etching will take you through applying wax grounds to a zinc plate, drawing and etching different strength lines, and printing your first ‘state proof’. You will be guided through different methods of adding tone through the use of creative inking techniques, soft ground ‘backgrounds’, or resin aquatint. You will go on to work directly with painterly brushstrokes with sugar-lift, and experiment with different resists to give you a full vocabulary of mark-making and tonal qualities. You can work on multiple plates and overprint 2 plates at once, or work in a mini-series of plates/etchings. You will also be shown colour roll-overs and a-la-poupe inking for the multi-coloured approach. Suitable for beginners or just those wanting a refresh. Read more...
