Exhausted But Happy!

plate prep

Just back from a very tiring weekend printmaking course at Trefeglwys Print Studio. It was fantastic. I learned so much and came away with a number of prints I’d be happy to exhibit and two new etching plates to edition and an etching plate to work on and finish. Result. I’m shattered now though. The first thing we did was prepare a copper plate for a ‘faux’ mezzotint, a process invented by Trefeglwys printmaker Andrew Baldwin. I think the plate is a work of art in itself.

I had some drawings to work from, I decided to develop three plates from my sketches of the Mari Lwyd and the faux mezzotint will be based on the middle drawing. More tomorrow, off to bed now ……..

    Agreed about the plate itself being a work of art.

    Very exciting exploration! Lovely results! Printing is a whole different process to master.

    Lucky you! Beautiful images and I’m so curious about the new technique. Always fun to learn new things that don’t require intensive rocker work!
