These prints were made with the new press at the Artists Society of Canberra where I belong to a printmaking group. Jo Hollier, a well known local printmaker gave us some instruction in use of the press by giving a workshop in drypoint. Because an acetate sheet is used rather than copper or zinc, there are no noxious chemicals to deal with. An etching needle makes the pattern, and can be helped by the use of a dremel. I used part of the drawing I did in the Blue Mountains recently. Click on the images to get more information on the process. Chin Colle is the name given to the process with the pink section.
