Event description
Etching Without Acid

About this Event

In this class we will introduce you to a safer and more environmentally friendly etching process, using common materials available to everyone and some classic alternatives too.

You will learn how to prepare a zinc plate with an acrylic ground, draw your design into the ground, and then etch it using a copper sulphate solution which etches without producing toxic fumes and so is a contribution to a cleaner environment.

We will also show you how to ink and print your plate and you'll go home with a small edition of prints.

Please be aware that although this technique is much safer than acid etching, some of the materials used can be harmful if used without a mask or gloves (These items will be available on the day). Not suitable for children or pregnant women. We will also be using white spirit for cleaning up so please let us know at the beginning of the class that you are ok with this.
