After years of only existing in the authors’ heads and in classes and bits of paper at New Grounds Print Workshop in Albuquerque, NM, the premier manual for non-toxic etching is now available. Representing the breadth and depth of 18 years of trials, experiments, failures and successes at the first non-toxic etching workshop in the United States, this book is an invaluable aid to any printmaker.
With detailed lists, step-by-step instructions, and troubleshooting sections we cover:
- Line etching
- Spit Bite
- Lift ground
- Soft Ground
- Color printing
- Curation of hand-pulled prints
- Instructions for setting up a non-toxic etching studio
This book offers useful information for etchers on all levels. It is invaluable for those wishing to make the transition from toxic to non-toxic etching, and it is suited as a textbook for a college level etching class.
