Small copper etching from today (bout 3"x4"). Been getting my hands dirty figuring out how my non/low toxic printing setup will work. Trying to print safely in my small apartment bedroom. Ive taken a lot of notes, made a few mistakes (strike-thru in the highlights!) but learned a lot today! For anybody interested heres the basic setup:
degrease copper plate with 1 crushed Tums (calcium carbonate) to one part Soy sauce. Coat degreased plate with one coat Lascaux Acrylic Gloss Varnish and allow to cure 12 hours then coat with Golden Hi Flo Carbon Black and let cure for 30 minutes. Etch drawing in peracetic acid of 3 parts Vinegar (5% concentration) 2 parts Hydrogen peroxide (3% concentration) and 2 tablespoons of table salt in pyrex dish. Etch between 30min to hour. Clean ground off with Citrasol or safer option of Soda Ash(sodium carbonate). Print with Akua non toxic inks. Hope this helps any printers out there.

Wasn't intending this to be anything other than an experiment with some thinned out inks to get a feel for how they print but i kinda like what happened.

Tonight's monotype. For anyone interested in what a monotype is it is a single print made by covering a blank plate with ink and then wiping away areas with rags, tshirts, sticks or whatever you can find to push the tacky ink around . The areas where you wipe away the ink will show the white of the paper. When you run it thru a press it makes a single impression and thats it. .

Monotype from tonight. Printing with a cool black on a warm tan paper which i feel is really helping push the warms forward and the shadows back. Kinda a lucky accident. I love how quick these prints take , it is almost like a sketch. I have a lot to learn with how to control values of lights and darks as it handles very differently than oil painting. It is a lot of rolling, wiping brushing, smearing, dabbing and blotting. #monotype X

Subway drawing from today. Pencil on pen paper (love sketching on this combination). Starting this drawing thinking these guys were stumbling, showing a moment where all the legs are in the air. Thinking of that gericault (was him right?) painting of the horse with all it's feet in the air. Then i reaized i was drawing all the people wrong and they started looking like they were falling from a great height and about to hit ground and so i went with it. .

#inktober day 6. Hand tinted drypoint. Still working out kinks with how to print well on my new press. Been a long day of work but had to crank out a drawing/print before bed. Shoutout to all my new coworkers @artistcraftsman_parkslope also doing inktober. Our peer pressure to keep doing an ink drawing a day is real and i love you all for it.

Hand tinted drypoint. #inktober day 5. I just got my first etching press and put it together in my bedroom tonight. I printed a drypoint I engraved last week and inked to simulate aquatinting. The ability to print in my room anytime I want is incredible. Still working out some kinks but going to finally get some new prints done..
