Etching - Etcholution Series

Printmaking - Intaglio


In my second Printmaking class i concentrated more on linoleum prints and etching (spent most of Printmaking I doing silkscreening). For this series i calculated the amount of zinc in the plate i was going to use, then over the course of the term, i coated it, etched, it, coated it, etched it, etc. Each time i'd make one print, then dip it in the acid again. Somebody made off with generation 12 though.
