Develop your drawings and digital photographs into polymer photogravure intaglio prints. The course includes image preparation, plate making, inking and intaglio printing. This is an acid free intaglio printmaking method with many creative possibilities.
Starting with drawing and photography from your own portfolio or sketchbook you will develop your ideas onto photo-polymer plates through to inking and printing the etching in the studio. This process produces etchings for both photography and drawing with deep tonal qualities.
The photo-polymer gravure process uses light sensitive plates, using drawings and positive imagery. The intaglio plate is printed as with etching. It is an acid free process.
