Etching: An Artist's Guide [9781785006159]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
Etching can seem mysterious and inaccessible, but this practical book guides you through the process to reveal the potential of this distinctive means of creating artists' prints. With clear instructions and visual guides, it explains the many ways that marks are first made on a metal plate before ink is applied and the image transferred onto a sheet of paper. The book goes on to introduce a broad menu of techniques, allowing the visual artist to develop a uniquely personal approach. Topics include the materials and equipment needed to get started, from the simple etching needle and scraper-burnisher to the etching press. Explanations are given for photo-etching, aquatint, as well as related intaglio processes such as drypoint and photopolymer. This new book encourages artists to experiment and try combining techniques to explore their potential, and includes interviews with leading artists explaining their approaches.
AUTHOR: Ann Norfield is an artist specializing in printmaking. She exhibits widely and her work is held in many private, national and international collections. She has taught for many years and was one of the founders of the thriving East London Printmakers Studio.
