Etching Fundamentals II: Soft Ground

April 16 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm


Sunday, April 16, 10 AM – 5 PM

with Larinda Meade

Soy Wax Soft Ground is an impressionable, acid resistant, wax based medium which allows an artist to obtain delicate lines, subtle tones and direct object impressions through etching.  This workshop will introduce you to how to make the soft ground and how to use it as a way to add line, tone and texture to your etchings in one simple step.  It’s versatile, sensitive and easy to use and gives gorgeous results.  Add this technique to your etching toolkit!

This workshop is the second in our Etching Fundamentals Series, a 3-part series for novices focused on safer and more sustainable etching techniques. Participants are welcome to take one workshop in the series or all of them, whether they are new to etching or experienced printmakers looking to expand beyond traditional etching methods. Enroll in all 3 classes at once and receive 15% off with the coupon code ETCHINGSERIES.
