Realized I can use the leftover ghost image after i print to make another monoprint. It is great for making variations and trying different ideas based on the original composition. Special thanks to my good friend @zacscheinbaum for coming over to print with me today and keepin me productive after a long day of work. .

Oil sketch on yupo paper. For those that haven't tried it, yupo is a polypropylene plastic that is slightly absorbant, and takes oil really well. .

Small 3"x4" aquatint. Salvaged a failed aquatint by burnishing the previously patchy dark background into the somewhat lighter and more even platetone. Tonight gonna try out how well hairspray works as an aquatint resist. .

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 lights!) 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 2062 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.
