Advanced Printmaking: Aquatint
Aquatint is an etched plate that is created for making tones. It can be used alone or with other intaglio techniques.
We will use the most traditional method is composed of fine particles of ground pine rosin. We use a state of the arts aquatint box designed and built by Ward Walker for applying dust. The dust is melted creating a ground that is not solid like a hard ground. The acid bites around the particles, creating a tooth in the plate to hold ink.
In this workshop we will explore a variety of ways to make tones using soft- ground, burnishing, litho crayons, sugar lift and spitbite
Hints for wiping a plate and registration guides also included in workshop.
