If Not Here Where

sugarlift 002

I’ve been etching a new plate at Hot Bed Press the last week or so.  I always forget how long the process can take if you don’t want to rush things, especially with sugar-lift. However, despite the sighs and winsome looks outside, I did have fun splashing it on to the plate and a few cups of tea later was rewarded with this beautiful crystallisation as the the sugar dried on the hot bed, see details below.

The plate is being made in preparation for an exhibition that starts next weekend, 7th July, at Didsbury Parsonage. See below for flyer and click here for more details.

      thank you! Sometimes I think it’s a shame non-printmakers only get to see the finished print, so much of the exciting stuff happens beforehand, but perhaps that keeps the magic for us.
