Mezzotint

Weekend Course

Course dates: Sat 6 & Sun 7 July (two-day course). 

Developed in the 17th century, Mezzotint is a copper engraving technique used by artists. By burnishing or scraping away a uniformly roughed surface the engraver works from dark to light creating soft gradations of tone and rich, velvety blacks.
