New Project in Progress:
Working progress from Jennifer !
pic 1 - drawing into the blackened plate (the waxed surface of the metal plate is made black by burning it in candle flame)
pic 2 - adding Bitumin paint to the plate where I don’t want the acid dip to eat at the metal
pic 3 - the plate about 45 minutes later (it has been sitting in a liquid that eats the metal thus making the lines where it has been exposed)
pic 4 - a close up. The final print is yet to come!
pic 5 - squeezed this in to show a happy mistake - this is Foss the Cat (Lear’s sidekick) that I wanted to make a postcard from. I used the Dry Point method for this but didn’t dig deep enough so it came out very light… but looks quite fluffy! Quite nice to see the mistakes sometimes..
