Silk aquatint has the richness of mezzotint, the spontaneity of action painting, the vivacious surface of a palette knife impasto and the durability of a steel-faced etching plate all WITHOUT ACID. This collagraphic plate-making method is created with acrylic paint: painting white onto a dark field, similar to developing a mezzotint image. The resulting plates are intaglio printed through an etching press with water-based ink (Charbonnel Aqua Wash). This hands-on workshop is geared towards painters with or without prior printmaking experience. Challenging experiments will be encouraged; and playfulness is a must. Participants can expect to go home with several finished pieces. Kathy will share exciting examples of this medium from her collection. Limited to 8 students.
