About the course:

Discover the subtle tonal qualities and fine detail available through photopolymer plates using photographic imagery and hand drawn originals. You will learn how to make test strips and achieve perfect exposure of the plate to get great depth and tonal range from your original imagery. The plate is ‘developed’ in tap water; no need for acid or caustic solution. Go on to ink and print in different ways achieving perfect printing.
