This semester I took printmaking where we did some intaglio(pronounced intalio… I seemed like an idiot because when I signed up I went around telling everyone how I was taking intaglio and I emphasized the g.. anyway) We also did some lino cuts and a colograph, but I’ll post all of my other prints on another day. Today I’ve decided to do a kind of step by step of intaglio. Not a tutorial, because there are a lot of little things that you just learn from watching someone or from learning from them in person. Anyway, on to the pictures!
My sketch on the right, with my two plates covered with asphaltum and etched in to. You’ll see why I did two plates in the next few pictures.
Dun dun dun! The acid room!
