Viscosity Printing

Weekend Course

This course is not currently on the schedule

Tutor: Justin Sanders

About the course:

Pioneered by S.W.Hayter in the 1960s viscosity printing uses different resistances in ink composition to enable 2 to 3 colours to be inked onto one plate giving the artist a wonderfully vibrant print with incredible depth. You will be shown how to mix inks from pigment, ink a la poupe and to roll over plates 2 colours with rollers of different hardnesses. Justin is an expert in this technique and can bring a whole new world of opportunities and new life to old etching plates.
