About 10 years ago I took an etching workshop & ever since, I have been obsessed with having a press in my studio. Well, a year and a half ago I purchased one & it has been sitting in my studio just staring at me. I’ve kind of been afraid to use it. NO MORE … I have decided to play with it as much as I can for the month of March & beyond!
Yesterday I did a little still life drawing, placed the drawing under a 4×6 inch piece of plexiglass & then painted the still life on the plexi. From here, I ran the painted plexi through the press onto some thick archival paper. I did this 4 different times, creating 4 one of a kind pieces of the same subject matter. This gave me a chance to see how it all worked. I had a blast getting lost in something completely new. I hope you like them! You can purchase one individually for $35 or purchase them as a set for $115–ship for free. They will come sleeved on archival mat board. Click on image for larger view. Paper size is approx 7×9.
