It was pioneered by British printmaker Stanley William Hayter in the 1960’s.You will work on two small images simultaneously learing to deep etch an image into zinc plates to achieve different levels in the surface. You will then learn to mix different viscosities of coloured inks, how to apply them to your image and print on to paper.
