Drypoint printing plates

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.
