If you like to draw, and love rich dark blacks and subtle gradients, this printmaking workshop is for you! The design principle is similar to that of reductive charcoal drawing; where one starts with a black background and creates an image by removing and erasing charcoal pigment. First students will learn how to create a heavy even texture on a copper plate. This creates the rich blacks that mezzotints are known for. Next, students will learn how to use the scraper and burnisher to work subtractively, taking out the light areas of the the composition.
