Print taken from etched steel plate

A4 size prints taken from etched steel plate onto 300gsm watercolour paper using Safewash Inks.

The Safewash Inks are proving to be a pleasure to use. The clean up and ink removal from the steel plate takes a moment using dishwashing soap and warm water. Because there no toxic solvents involved like White Spirit the lack of fumes means i can clean the plates at home in the kitchen sink giving me more actual printing time in the studio.

Peak Heat

Today has been the hottest day of the year so far. Its peak summertime here and i have been enjoying spending the day printing at a friends studio.

I was working with the safe wash inks, seeing how they mixed with each other to make new colours and then printing the result after inking up a plate.
