Picture This: Photoetching on Metal

April 22, 2017 - April 23, 2017, 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

photoetching on metal by Karen Christians

This unique and exciting workshop explores metal surface embellishment using current photocopy technology. This process involves a heat transfer of virtually any high contrast photographic or graphic image via transparency film, directly onto metal. By using a mordant (acid), such as ferric chloride, images are etched onto the surface of copper and brass. The etched plate can then be altered by piercing, patination, enameling or used as a printing plate.  There will be ample time for exploration and creativity. We will also explore direct laser copy onto metal. A photocopier will be available for the transfers.  This is an excellent class for printmakers or photographers who wish to expand their artistic palette.  Students will be supplied with a list of items to bring. Appropriate for all skill levels. Instructor: Karen Christians
