Advanced Etching: Multiple Color Intaglio at Kala

January 10, 17, 24: Sundays 10am - 6pm

For artists experienced in etching who are ready for the challenge of making multiple plate color etchings. Participants bring a copper, zinc or photopolymer plate (solarplate) that has been previously prepared by any intaglio method - from simple drypoint to photo-etching or complex computer imagery. This plate will serve as the key plate. Then, using a transfer method, two more plates are prepared for the additional colors. Students also learn to develop shades, texture, and gradation. Kazuko demonstrates scraping and sanding techniques to achieve tone adjustment and color blending using three plates. Prior intaglio experience is required.
