Teeny Tiny Tryouts

7 Apr

Spent the entire day in the print studio here in Rawalpindi, doing some test intaglio prints with Intaglio Printmakers paper drypoint card. I haven’t used it for quite a while and I needed some practice. I worked on some tiny scraps of the card with different sharp tools, incising lines, cross hatching tones and ripping and gouging to create dark areas.

Here are the proof prints from the little test plates. They’re not great art but I had fun doing them and it gave me the practice I needed . I’ll be developing a range of drypoints later in the week.
