Kim Munson Mezzotint 2013
Day two of Judith Rothchild's Mezzotint Workshop at the ICA Print Center: This morning we learned how to ink a mezzotint. We used a warm hot plate to apply unmodified ink with a brayer, and then wipped the plate with tarlatan, like one would wipe an etching. With the press set with tight pressure, we printed on very wet Hahnamule paper. We continued to work back into our images, burnishing to bring out the light values.
Judith showed us more of her Mezzotints, and some artist books she has made. She will be one of the artists attending CODEX, a bi-annual exhibition of artist books. This year's CODEX fair is in Richmond, CA and runs from Feb 10th - 13th. Stop by and see Judith, and over a hundred other artists.
