Gum Arabic Transfer

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Justin Sanders

About the course:

Back by popular demand! Turn simple photocopies into litho plates. The photocopies are lightly saturated with a gum arabic solution. Rolling over the photocopy with ink it will hold the image just like a lithograph would and resist the ink where the oily surface is. You can work with photographs and/or hand drawn imagery. Justin will show you overprinting and layering to add more depth and colours. Results are delicate, tonal and quite unique.
