we are working all week on intaglio printing it is a method of printing where the image you want is scratched in a plastic plate. the scratching has to be backwards. the depth of the scratch will determine how much ink will stay as a color the work is done on a plastic plate with a sharp tool called a stylus.
as printing has started and will continue. the students are filling in the scratches with ink and then buffing the surface. The plate is run through a print rollar with a sheet steel plate , wet paper that will be printed on and a blanket.
finish printing. we will begin to talk about silkscreen and what to do, ideas to use.
