*casually aquatints one of my selfies*

i used sharpie as the acid resist for this one it worked REALLY well holy shit. much more precise than painting with hard ground and i didn’t have to wait for it to dry god bless

#printmaking #aquatint #seriously my hard ground plate took about 2 hours to MAKE #MOST of that was drying hard ground time #like u only dip it in the acid for about 40 seconds per layer #this one?? took maybe an hour??? #and i had to do a lot more work and detail #asdjf;askdjf i like it #kinda wanna etch over it #tho i'm not sure if that would ruin the aquatint or? #i'll have to ask the girl who etched over her aquatint and then ruined the aquatint like. wht the fuck happened there bro #anyways #art school tag #mine

one of my favorite prints so far!

i made an etching drawing of my hand, drypointed scribbles on top of it, then aquatinted about five layers of splotches with a large flat brush.

pictured: copper printing plate, print with ink wiped with tarletan and phone book paper, and hand-wiped print.

!!!! I MADE A PAINTING THAT I DONT HATE TODAY!!!!!!!

& a palette shot cause I always think those are interesting. our teacher has us working with the primaries and white, except the primaries are mix of a pure pigment and an earth tone (or black) so there’s a bit of a challenge in mixing certain colors.
