grotesquerie
Work with drypoint on acrylic plates and monoprinting
Explore the traditional use of drypoint printmaking on acrylic plates combined with monoprinting and chine collé. We will use two different monoprinting techniques, blended relief colour rolls using Van Son inks, and water-based Createx paints. Small areas of gold leaf can be applied to the printing paper after the monoprinting, and before the drypoint is printed. A special gold size will be used to prevent the gold lifting during the intaglio printing.

No previous experience required.

Photopolymer intaglio printmaking: A3 plates, CMYK four plate printing
Make a large photopolymer print using the four-plate technique. Drawings or photographs will be separated into cyan, magenta, yellow and black plates and printed in register to create wonderful graphic images. Before making the A3 plates we will test your technique on A5 plates. You will be shown how to do make plates which register when printed, and how to print plates in register. You can use drawings or photographic images to make your plates.
