Introduction to Etching #645

This class will serve as an introduction to the medium of etching and is perfect for beginners or those with some intaglio experience looking to hone their skills. We will begin with the basics of line etching using a liquid hard ground resist before moving on to the addition of tones, gradients, and textures through the aquatint process. Students will learn to prepare sheet metal for use as a print matrix, etch using nitric acid, and print a limited edition of their etchings on a press. Professional editioning techniques as well as ways to re-work finished plates will also be addressed.
