Copper Sulphate Etching

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Martin Kochany

About the course:

Saturday 14th & Sunday 15th May        11.00am – 5.00pm

Copper sulphate is quick and effective on aluminium and unlike nitric acid there is no need for an extraction cabinet. It is suitable for etching safely at home. You will be instructed on how to mix your own copper sulphate recipe and experiment with different ways of mark-making using hard ground and soft ground and various resists.

For seasoned etchers it could transform your practice. For those new to etching it will open a world of possibilities.
