Create dense, mezzotint-like surfaces which explore gesture, texture, and tonal effects. Silk Aquatint is a collagraph-like technique that allows artists to create rich prints using a painterly printmaking method with non-toxic inks. Participants will learn to construct inexpensive plates of various sizes from Sintra board layered with monofilament mesh and painted with black acrylic. They will then work backward to soft highlights and light tones by layering polymer gels with brushes and textures. The plate will mirror and resemble your final image. This workshop is a wonderful print experience for artists of all levels and backgrounds.

All materials included.
