Etching #2: Aquatint & Sugarlift

Explore intaglio printmaking while creating tonal imagery. Learn how to paint directly onto the copper plate to create painterly marks. Participants will develop the skills to use aquatint, sugarlift and open bite techniques. These techniques are perfect for artists who enjoy the freedom of using a brush. Experiment with ways of drawing and printing the plates to produce rich, tonal images. A great way to build on the skills acquired in Etching #1 (although this is not a prerequisite to enrolment in Etching #2).
