Seraphina Martin: Solar Plate Etching @ The Studio

SOLAR PLATE ETCHING: is a quick, simple and safe alternative to traditional etching. Rather than acids, all that is needed is the UV rays of the sun to etch a plate. Your image is applied onto transparent film, then exposed to the sun for 2.30 min.  A built in photo sensitive emulsion hardens the image in the sun. The plate is then washed in water revealing your image ready for printing on the etching press. Emphasis will be on creating images using elements from the natural world. Existing illustrations from nature on clear film will be used with natural elements such as leaves, flowers, feathers, lace. Many applications of colour rolled onto the plate will result in a stunning portfolio of prints.
