Salt Etching with Photo Resist Film with Dónall Billings

This is an experimental course combining traditional and digital printmaking techniques to achieve surprising and unique results.

Salt Etching with Photo Resist Film

Aluminium salt etching uses sodium chloride and copper sulphate to produce deep black tonal qualities in the plate akin to an aquatint.  Your will explore resists made of various materials to achieve a range of tone, texture and depth in the prints.  The course will also combine the use of Photoreisist film with hand drawn imagery and mark making.

Four week evening course aimed at beginners to those with some experience who would like to become comfortable and experiment more with the etching process.  All materials are provided but a high-contrast, digital image will be required for exposing onto the photo-resist film.
