Bring a drawing to place under the clear plate to begin the drypoint process.
Drypoint is an intaglio printing technique. At PrintSpace, we use tools to incise a line into a plexiglass plate. A variety of lines can be made with different sizes of needles. Tone can also be achieved using a roulette to abrade the surface.
Ink is pushed into the recesses of the plate. Extra ink is wiped away leaving the ink only in the incised lines. Dampened paper and a run through the press produces a more delicate print.
A second plate may be used for adding color through the monoprint process.
Plate size 5" x 7".
Self curate prints produced during the workshops for a 1-2 week exhibition at PrintSpace!
