I also think, that, if you never tried it ... do it, it is an exiting very traditional technique.

::: Dry Point :::
Hi there, my solo show is coming closer and closer. Currently I am working on a dry point on a zinc plate. Why zinc? ... we are not allowed to etch zinc plates in the studio, so I am using my leftover plates for dry points. This time the plate is approximately 18" wide and 12" high ... I have to measure the plate. I am half way done, and it is fun again working in this medium. I really like the way this technique looks printed. The only down turn is that the edition can't be so big. It's a big plate and I can't wait to see the first print ... I will post it here when it is done. Promise!
