Altered Surfaces - Solar Plate Etching Day 2

Altered Surfaces: Solar Plate Etching
from 75.00

Create rich, etched, photographic prints with an emphasis on unique mark making using photopolymer plates. Artists are encouraged to push the limits by working directly on the surface of their photographs, utilizing a large, unique variety of mark making tools to create their imagery.

The solar plate process can accommodate the stylistic approaches of virtually any artist, from photographers to draughtsmen. Solarplate is a light sensitized steel backed polymer material used by artists as an alternative to hazardous printing techniques. It is a simple, safer, and faster approach than traditional etching and relief printing. 

Participants should bring photographs printed onto a clear transparency/acetate 6x8” film as well as brushes and any of their personal mark making tools.
