last printing sessions of 2010


I had a couple of busy printing sessions just before finishing for Christmas. I did some more screen printing - I particularly enjoy over printing on some of my earlier prints. There is a bit of the unexpected about how two completely different images will work together - or not!!!

I also did some more etching with silver foil plates, which I really enjoy. I like being able to stitch into the printing plate and have been getting some great results.

Natalie Shaw, [who is the techincal demonstrator for printmaking], kindly demonstrated to Sally and I how to do hard ground etching on zinc and aluminium plates. I've posted a few of the early prints in an image album. We are planning to do some soft groud etching on the plates when we go back in the new year.
