Intaglio printmakers

Intaglio Printmakers is the nearest and one of the last printmaker suppliers in London.  It’s a bit of a journey to London Bridge.  I went today to buy safe wash etching inks in 3 colours and some aluminium and paper drypoint plates.

I am finding out about how to prepare plates one guy suggested using vinegar, in the workshop at East London Printmakers we used whiting and ammonia which I don’t want to use.

I used Gesso with Carb and pva with a little water added.  I will be printing the plates in the New Year at my open access studio.  I added the carb to the liquid rather than sprinkle it onto the glue on the plate as I think it would be too thick and not print or ink up and rub down well.
