Open studio and demonstrations. Photopolymer and other contemporary platemaking techniques.
We will use our home built exposure system to create photo based images. We will use ImageOn film to create photopolymer etching plates. A variety of metals (steel, aluminum, zinc, copper) will be discussed and shown. Several etching solutions will be tested. The transparencies from the marbling demonstrationwill be used to crete multiple plates that will be printed in sequence on the RunAway etching press. We will also use additional digitally produced transparencies to create simulated "photo-garvure" matrices and further layer the prints.
