More printmaking

Etching today! I've got my plates ready and we're starting with the acid bath this morning. image

Gone back to some of my favorite images. I forgot to flip the one of James in uniform so that one will print back to front. Duh. i even wrote on the sketch in big letters REVERSE THIS ONE but still stuffed it up.

This is one of the drypoints from yesterday. It's a really fun technique with heaps of potential but you need a press so I can't see me doing that much more of it.

And another (not so good) drypoint. His legs came out even hairier than usual.
