The sunny bank holiday weekend bought with it a Silk Aquatint workshop at the yard:ARTspace
Silk Aquatint is a sophisticated collagraph version of Mezzo tint.
Mount board is covered with chiffon which holds a rich velvety amount of ink.
By using layers of glue, details and tones can be achieved.
Despite the warm weather there was a great deal of concentrated gluing as layers were applied to make different tones.
The weekend was used to explore the
plate making processes and then
chine collee, and viscocity
inking was added to the mix.
With the studio doors flung open
of prints were made. The next collagraph workshop will be 23 September, Printing Collagraph and Lino together.
