Badge-eater

5 Aug

badger

I ran a short course in using a pasta maker as a printing press at Swansea Print Workshop today. We used paper drypoint plates to make miniature prints. I very quickly re-sketched a drawing of a badger from my sketchbook and cut it into the plate with a drypoint tool. The nose is a bit too long, it’s almost an anteater – a badge-eater! 😀

Here are some more photos, from inking the plate to the finished prints. Click here for a step-by-step record of the process and here to see it done on video.
