One Student’s Example Of Hard Ground Etching

Do you love to draw ? Would you like to make multiples of your art images? Long before the invention of photographic processes, artists have used hard ground etching techniques to capture fine lines and sharp details to create rich, compelling, hand pulled fine art prints. Learn non-toxic etching processes such as plate preparation, proper inking, wiping and printing skills to achieve a degree of creative expression that is exciting and fulfilling.

Hard ground etching is one of the most basic line drawing techniques that allow you to make multiples. Learn the non-toxic copper etching process in the beginner- level workshop. You will learn plate preparation, proper inking, wiping and printing skills. Sunghee will review the basic history of the medium and share with you many samples of her own and student’s works.

  1. I enjoy seeing printmakers share their ideas through workshops and lessons. My greatest fear is that old ways of making art may give way to more automated processes, so I’m glad you’re keeping the tradition alive. The non-toxic method is certainly a far cry from when I first learned printmaking about 30 years ago. We used Dutch Mordant for copper and nitric acid for zinc. These methods have virtually eliminated the need of acid hoods and make learning this old process much more user friendly. I wish you the best on your classes.
