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.

    It’s interesting to watch your progress with this image. I think that sometimes it would be wonderful to hand over the actual printmaking to a more skilled hand that mine, when it comes to etchings and the like. I am way morecomfortable an the screen printing side. The print studio I belong to holds an annual screen vs press exhibition- I know exactly where I fit. 😉

      Now I’m the other way around. I love cutting or painting stencils for screens, but I get into such a mess when I put a squeegee in my hand lol !
