WORKSHOP

ACQUAFORTE ETCHING 101

Alessandra e Andrea, chalcography

In this workshop I'll guide you through the process of making a copper mold that will be used in the printing phase! I will then let you know the technique of chalcographic incision called "acquaforte". All the steps of the process will be carried out following the oldest and most traditional technique. You will make a drawing of your choice that will be placed on a small copper slab. You will then engrave this plate with a metal scriber after having covered it with a layer of hot wax. We will create channels out of the traces you had drew and engraved where we will deposit some ink. This will bring us to the inking stage. Then, finally, we will print our design on engraving paper using the chalcographic press. You get to keep the matrix you made and the print!
