Mezzotint

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Justin Sanders

About the course:

Create a plate of intense, dense black by indenting a solid field of dots using a mezzotint rocker and work back into the copper plate by burnishing tones that reveal themselves from the dark giving a strong sense of depth, form and chiaroscuro, (light to dark contrasts). Justin Sanders, Senior Print Technician at The University of Birmingham will show you the skills of burnishing as well as tricks and tips to make your prints strong and atmospheric.
