Electro-etching

Weekend Course

Course dates: Sat 18 & Sun 19 May

Electro-etching is an effective, environmentally-friendly method of intaglio plate-making. It requires no expensive equipment or harmful acids. Results are controllable, generating unique tonal effects as well as enabling a greater clarity of line. This workshop will cover the making of deeply embossed-etched zinc plate line etching with electro-tint: a rosin-free alternative to aquatint.
