Instructions (View and Print)

Silk Aquatint is a non-acid method of working a print plate. The image is created by painting with whitened acrylic medium on a black silk surface backed with plastic, to produce a variety of tones and textures. The plate is then inked, wiped (like a metal plate), and printed on an etching press.
