AA2A at UCLan - Day 2

Armed with several positives, both hand-drawn and computer generated, I’ve rocked up at the printmaking studio to clean a screen (ear defenders, gloves and goggles at the ready), coat with emulsion and then expose it with my images.  


I’ve got a few test pieces just to understand what the exposure is like – these include some different types of pen and litho crayon, and then several scaled-up images of the same beetle with different fills.  I’ve changed the levels on these hand-generated fills so I can see the difference in exposure.  I might have a play around with layering these up with similar colours when printing to create graduation.  As I’m also hoping to use iridescent colour as fills for the beetle, this should also be useful in creating that duotone effect.


Back tomorrow for (actual) printing…
