Here are two of the drypoint prints I produced on Sunday.
The viaduct print uses a rollover of orange ink over the black ink on the Perspex plate.
With the old infirmary drypoint print, I will add a wash of watercolour at some point.
I am hoping to do some chine collé prints of the viaduct using the same drypoint plate.
I have been working on some new plates this week in readiness for printing this Sunday. The two drypoint printing plates I am preparing are on thin plastic which I have etched onto images depicting the old infirmary and the railway viaduct.
On the viaduct plate, I have used a combination of gesso, PVA glue and superglue to build up texture which should hopefully give some interesting results when printed. I hope to use the chine collé method to add colour to the prints with magazine print and coloured tissue paper.
I have inserted a short video clip and some photos of the drypoint plates in this post.
