Colour Etching Techniques
14 Jan 2019 - 15 Jan 2019
Learn to draw, etch and aquatint a plate with teacher Bail Hall.
During the two day workshop, Basil will offer and demonstrate the use of acrylic hard ground, traditional soft ground and sugarlift techniques as a means of getting an image onto a plate. The really enthusiastic should be able to make a plate to plate transfer for a colour plate and print the two together. Basil will also offer another colouring technique using chine colle.
