Learn to use non-toxic Akua Carborundum Gel to create quick and easy printmaking plates for small editions. This process yields a rich velvety surface which can be worked into using dark-field reductive techniques (like a monotype or mezzotint) or positively with a faux-litho drawing technique. Working from sketches or photographs, students will use a variety of mark-making tools to manipulate their plates which will be coated with a layer of carborundum layer gel. Students will print their images using Akua Intaglio inks. Open to beginners and experienced printmakers alike.
