Here’s another example of my first messings around with etching

This print uses tissue paper for the eyes which is a very old technique to get blocks of colour into print work. It can be a bit tricky as is anything involving tiny bits of tissue in close proximity to glue and fingers.

I tried a couple of prints using different coloured tissues for the eyes – the yellow worked quite well also.

This is another of my first attempts at etching – I took a varnished copper plate home with me and used an ordinary sewing needle to scratch out the design, then dunked it in the acid the next time I has a print class.
