COPPER PLATE GRAVURE



The week of 15 April i.e. 15-19 April, 10.00-17.00.
This is the method that Fox Talbot pioneered and was brought to market by Klic in the 1880s.
We will produce aquatinted copper plates onto which a carbon image will be made.
An etch will then be made through the carbon image to produce the printing plate
from which an image can be made. We will show a simplified method of judging the rate of etch
which Terry King developed at Hands-On Pictures.
Cost £500.
