Demonstration of how to carry out etching and aquatint tests to combine these techniques in an engraving. Taught by Raquel Hernández Izquierdo

No materials are required from participants.

No previous knowledge is necessary.

DURATION: 2 hours.


This workshop is given in order to show how the techniques of etching and aquatint can be combined in an engraving.

To this end, a practical demonstration of the processes of these techniques will be made and each participant will be provided with a stamp with the tests carried out.

Finally, a series of status tests will be shown (prints that record the process of engraving a matrix) to show how etching and aquatint are combined in the same engraving.
