Next Step

 

So I made solar plates from my three of my drawings. I made templates of certain areas so that I can use them to cut out handmade Japanese papers for the chine cole’ part of my etching.

And then I inked the plates and prepared the chine cole’ papers. And printed them… These are just a few of this next step... Next, I am going to hand color  certain areas with my prismacolor pencils …. I have seven more plates of women in hats to make…. yikes and to PRINT !!!!!

I will give you a closer look once they are finished..

It Starts with a Drawing……

Okay, ever since I had a strange visit from a stray black chicken, I have wanted to make some chicken drawings with plans to turn them into etchings with chine colle’…..

So I finally sat down and drew that chicken and about 4 more….. Here are my chicken drawings…

I have played around with some different papers and they still need more work but these are a few of the etchings after I have printed and hand colored them… What I love about these is that I can play with different colored papers and change them up…. These will probably end up being one of a kind prints…
