Proofing

13 Apr

I’m spending the weekend at the fabulous Trefeglwys Print Studio doing some etchings with master printmaker, Andrew Baldwin. I have been working on an aquatint today, on a zinc plate.

Here’s the first proof. It’s too dark so I tried thinning the ink with extender but it didn’t lighten it enough so I spent the last hour or so scraping areas of the plate to reduce the intensity of the aquatint. Tomorrow I’ll do another proof print to see if it works.
