The etching workshop deals with the creative possibilities of this artistic medium through its procedures.
Through the state tests – prints that are reserved for the author’s experience – each of the stages that are necessary for the production of an engraving will be known, from the preparation of the matrix, until the moment of its stamping.
A demonstration of each of these processes will be carried out, in order to make known the progressive transformation to which the plate is subjected by the action of the mordant acids.
Duration 3 hours in which we will see:
Theoretical introduction: brief historical trajectory, the tools and the different techniques will be explained.
Engraving and stamping materials (zinc, copper sulfate, tarlatan and scrapers …)
The matrix and its preparation
Engraving of the matrix and status tests.
