Did you know it was possible to etch intaglio plates without all the toxins, fumes and solvents? Are you frustrated by attempts with acrylic grounds and runny inks? Then this class is for you! Even if you’ve never done etching, you will learn all the basics using Andrew Baldwin’s BIG ground and Caligo soap & water-washable inks on a zinc plate. We will do simple line-work in the Saline Sulfate bath to complete a fine print from start-to- finish. Drypoint and alternative ground techniques will also be covered. Open to both experienced printmakers wanting to learn non-toxic techniques as well as complete beginners.
Deadline to sign up is Feb 23, 2018
