  22. 22. Etching Demonstration: Mongezi Ncaphayi 01 First, the copper plate is washed and degreased to remove all oily residues from the surface, so the etching fluid is able to make full contact with the copper. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  23. 23. Etching Demonstration 02 The printing paper is placed in a water bath to soften and expand the fibers. This enables the paper to pull the ink off of the plate more effectively. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  24. 24. Etching Demonstration 03 Layers of felt, called “blankets”, are placed on the press to even the pressure of the metal roller into a consistent, strong force. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  25. 25. Etching Demonstration 04 Next, the etching ink is scooped from the can and prepared for printing. Depending on the image to print, the printmaker may modify the ink with various additives, making the ink softer, harder, or easier to wipe. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  26. 26. Etching Demonstration 05 The printmaker then applies the prepared ink to the surface of the etched copper using a card or other flat tool. The areas that are etched will grab on to the ink as it is applied. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  27. 27. Etching Demonstration 06 The excess ink is then wiped from the plate with a starched piece of cheesecloth called a tarleton. The printmaker can use the tarleton to control the amount and consistency of the ink left on the plate. However, non-etched areas are usually wiped clean. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  28. 28. Etching Demonstration 07 A thin film of ink, called “plate tone”, can be removed gently with paper. Phone books are an excellent source of such paper. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  29. 29. Etching Demonstration 08 The inked plate is then placed on the press. The soaked paper is set under the blankets and folded over in preparation for printing. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  30. 30. Etching Demonstration 09 The printmaker then cranks the large wheel on the press to draw the paper and the blankets under the large metal roller. The high pressure from the metal roller presses the paper into the crevices of the etching, drawing out the ink wiped into them. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  31. 31. Etching Demonstration 10 The paper is removed from the plate, showing the ink that has transferred to the surface. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger

  70. 70. Monotype Demonstration: Joel Janowitz 01 A monotype is a form of printing where inks are applied to the printing surface by brush, roller or other means. Monotypes share many qualities with painting, in that brushes are used and the hand of the artist is directly involved in producing the image. The monotyped image cannot be duplicated exactly, unlike with other printmaking techniques. Monotypes are usually printed on paper, and a press is an integral part of the process. Also, residual ink on the plate will still print multiple times, allowing interesting layering techniques to be used. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  71. 71. Monotype Demonstration 02 Here a roller is being used to apply ink to the printing surface. The surface is usually Plexiglas. Plexiglas is strong, cheap, easily cleaned and transparent. An artist can trace designs or photographs laid underneath and then work with the ink above to create new images. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  72. 72. Monotype Demonstration 03 Monotyping also allows for easy editing and erasing. Here the artist removes applied ink with a rag. He may choose to leave some ink behind, creating transparency effects and areas of lighter color. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  73. 73. Monotype Demonstration 04 Sometimes the artist’s hand is the best tool for the job. Finger, palms and heels of the hand allow direct control of the ink surface. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  74. 74. Monotype Demonstration 05 Q-tips enable fine detail work. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  75. 75. Monotype Demonstration 06 Brushes can paint with ink, but can also paint with solvents. Using solvents over ink makes ripple effects and can lighten the color that prints. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  76. 76. Monotype Demonstration 07 Here the artist softens the edges of the large crescent shape with his fingers. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  77. 77. Monotype Demonstration 08 A small brayer is used here to create streaks and stripes in the background composition. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  78. 78. Monotype Demonstration 09 The present monotype, on the Plexiglas plate on the right, is compared with a previous version of the print. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  79. 79. Monotype Demonstration 10 Satisfied with the image, the artist prepares to print. He will use paper soaked in water to expand the fibers, which will help pull the ink off the printing plate. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
  80. 80. Monotype Demonstration 11 The print is run through the press, and the paper is pulled off the printing surface. Notice there is still ink left on the plate below. The artist can use this ink to create a new variation on this composition. Photo credit: Robin Z Boger
