Copper Sulphate Etching

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Kate Desforges

About the course:

Kate joins us from West Yorkshire Print Workshop where they use copper sulphate as their main mordant for etching. It is quick and effective on zinc and 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 recipe and experiment with different ways of markmaking using liquid hard ground, soft ground, and adding tone with rosin aquatint. For seasoned etchers it could transform your practice. For those new to etching it will open a world of possibilities.
