|Copper plate with sugar lift and hard ground, waiting |
for lift-off in a pan of warm water.
|Sugar lift was very slow, so I heated it up on a hot plate.|
|The sugar lift was successful! Notice the bright |
copper areas; these will be sprayed with paint to create tonal areas.
|Proof next to plate. Copper plate is only 4-1/5" x 6".|
|Proof printed on domestic etch paper.|
|Better image of the plate.|
Next Monday afternoon, I will be working this plate a bit further to fine-tune the image. It's totally abstract at this point but I see possibilities...shapes, images, etc. So I don't know exactly how it will develop but it will be fun to print off an edition or some more monoprints when it's finished.
I'm hoping to get quite a bit of this plate done next week since a new Intro to Printmaking class starts Jan. 10th on Thursdays at The Drawing Studio print lab. I'm going to be kind of a TA, helping Tom Lindell and Jennifer Clarke...mostly helping out during the Solarplate sessions and the cyanotype session! You can find the class here on page five of the online catalog.
Until next week,
