a few months ago (well, many months ago) I took a printmaking class. I learned how to make an etching on a zinc plate with acid and stuff that required wearing gloves and goggles and safety things. and I think I want to one day buy a printmaking press... if only... next $600 I find lying on the ground I'm getting one!
here's my first etching:
not too shabby, though I suppose I could have cleaned a bit up. I wish I had more time in class to make more prints, but I did what I could in the weeks I had. etching takes forever! but worth it!
