The Difference

double drop 3

Preparing an etching plate or a wood block or a silk screen is just the first stage of creativity in making an original print. The second creative input comes with the actual printing – the inks, papers and special effects you use. I printed the one above using the ‘double drop’ technique, printing the plate first in Vermilion and secondly in Prussian Blue. Although it’s quite monochromatic, it has a richer, more intense colour than the print below, which was just printed once, in black ink.

    Yes, I prefer the top print as well. There is more depth.

    Double drop, in this case at least, is definitely more interesting.

      Yes, i think it has a depth that the other doesn’t have
