Come explore the non-toxic alternative to aquatint in this hands on workshop. Carborundum prints also known as carborundum aquatint is a painterly technique that allows for the artist to create direct and spontaneous marks that can open up many new possibilities in the use of color and texture. A great method for creating color prints as this technique can be utilized in combination with many other intaglio techniques such as drypoint, etching and collagraph. Through demonstrations and in class experimentation, participants will be able to explore both plate making and printing options with this alternative intaglio method.
