Summer Mark-Making Lab
Shepherd & Maudsleigh Studio
June 18 + 19 / 10am to 5pm
Participants will explore beautiful drypoint mark-making: Scratch, sand, and abrade the surface of a plastic plate to create an image that can be wiped with tarlatan which allows those burrs and kicked up plate material to hold ink.
Petg plastic will be the substrate for the drypoints and monotypes, which is a flexible, transparent plastic sheet. We’ll proof and print these plates using Akua Intaglio Inks and modifiers.
Teaching will highlight how to make and print a drypoint plate with time to practice intaglio wiping skills, and demonstrations will include the ins and outs of mixing and layering Akua Intaglio Ink and manipulating color additions.
