It is with great sadness that we face the passing of our best supporter, our champion. Mike was always positive and he was the backbone of our collective. We are grateful for his kindness and generosity. We will miss him immensely.
Luca said that dry point is a very direct process. Here are the basic steps:
Draw the image on the plate (plexiglass this time) with a metal needle.
Ink the plate. For this demo I used water based intaglio ink.
Wipe the plate, take out extra ink.
Wet the paper (previously). Place it on top of the plate. Cover it with the blankets.
Run into the press, and you will have an original print.
Repeat the process and finish the edition.
