So, I have to post these, because otherwise my adoring fans (my mother, anyway) will think that I haven't been doing anything at all, and I have.  I've been taking a print-making class, and tormenting myself through the incredibly slow process (of two hours/week) of working on copper plates, and an acid bath that takes FOREVER to do anything.  We're doing aquatint next week, and I am very much looking forward to that.
These are all on pieces of copper that I got out of the "scrap box" (I thought I'd experiment before committing to expensive not-scrap plates), and are the result (so far) of essentially three sessions. 
I do love intaglio prints, but I don't know if I have the patience for this.  I'm actually quite frustrated.  There are some really cool textures if you look really closely.


  1. These are really wonderful (yes I looked closely), love the look of your prints! Love the old/modern feel of these.

  2. These are ace!! I love acid etching, but I also didn't have the patience for the shading and found aquatint SO much more fun... mmmm nasty dust that rots your lungs ;D
