Day 6: Jo Lankester Printmaking Copper Sulphate workshop @ Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts

Day 1 of 4; Copper Sulphate workshop, Umbrella Studio Contemporary Arts.

Today was the first of a 4 day work shop at Umbrella Studio demonstrating Copper Sulphate Etching using Zinc & Aluminium.

There are 10 students enrolled who are enthusiastic to learn how to create an aquatint without using the traditional techniques of Aquatinting.

I demonstrated how to polish, degrease, and apply a purchased sugarlift, and gouache as an alternative sugarlift medium, I also made available a home made sugarlift using sugar, water and Indian ink. Then how to apply and liquid hard ground.

We applied the liquid hard ground and then knocked off for the day.

Happy printmaking,

Jo Lankester
