After learning the basics of black and white intaglio, color etching is the next process a printmaker may wish to explore.
This workshop covers an array of techniques such as multiple plate etching, viscosity, a la poupee and hand colored prints. John also covers registration methods for both plate making and printing processes, and techniques for combining intaglio with other processes for color printmaking. Basic knowledge of printmaking processes and previous experience with etching is required.
