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.
