Photopolymer and Photo-etching Print Techniques (Foundation)
Tutor: Johnny Bulger.
Photopolymer printmaking utilises a light activated printmaking plate that is etched without the need for acid and produces results similar to the 19th century photographic process of photogravure. You will use ready-made Japanese 'Solarplates' that are exposed to an image and the image is 'etched' into the plastic layer and developed in a mild soda solution. More Info
