Etching

Did an etching workshop last week. Here is the plate i come out with. I did some prints a different day but i hadn't etched into the plate enough in some areas, to reveal the copper, so unfortunately some areas didn't print very well. I will pop them on once i've collected them from the print room but they were okay for a first attempt. It's a such a long process, makes you really appreciate some of the more complicated etching designs involving longer processes such as aquatint. Really fun though, you use acid and fire and hot plates and allllll sorts.
