Experimentation + new plates

steel etching plate

second edition of 10

steel etching plate

artists proof
Working with steel has its challenges. It is a hard metal and I have had trouble etching at home due to the lack of a rosin box to produce 'dust' + cover the steel evenly. Using the shaker method has proven to be hit and miss, however I do like the chance element + happy accidents. Below are my latest prints which I am working on for the show in Australia at the Sheffer Gallery, Sydney.
