our first day of etching went so fabulously well!
there was a lot of learning,
grasping a whole new concept.
the copper plates need to be filed,
buffed and polished.
here is Roz, at the buffing machine,
fully into it:
and Maggie, sketching her warthog so she can
paint the white negative space in black...
a brain twisting exercise let me tell you:
the acid baths:
my first plate with a good old quirky design:
scratched and bathed
the acid eating through the plate
and a first test print
of course i loved every minute of it!
more next week...
