Introduction to Etching and Aquatint: 6 Week CourseMon 2/17 - Mon 3/23
IS Projects is excited to offer a new technique in this six week course, meeting once a week - copper etching and aquatint!
Capture beautiful line variations and learn about the art of etching on copper in this six week workshop meeting Monday evenings. In this workshop, participants will work with a soywax softground, a non toxic ground composed of soy wax and ink, to achieve a broad range of lines and textures. Tonal variations will be added using an airbrush method that creates rich aquatints comparable to what is possible with rosin. Step etching and stopping out will be introduced to create prints with an assortment of values. Finally, each participant will learn about the subtleties of inking up a plate and printing on an etching press. Everyone will leave with a series of their own original prints.
No experience necessary and all materials are included! Feel free to bring reference images and sketches.
