Printmaking!

Back to copper; work in progress in my studio today

Drypoint on copper with Akua inks. This is my first try with Akua and I absolutely love it! The inks have an easy handle and are easy to clean. Also, happy with the drypoint line. Promising, isn’t it?

Collagraph

I just love collagraph printmaking. Really. Also, have had a thing for shredded paper for a while. Thought I would try it for image and texture.

Just because you love something…

doesn't mean it will work out just fine! As happens often with collagraph, I have too much ink in places where the paper is dense. Perhaps I should've pulled a ghost print...
