Printing a Photogravure



http://youtu.be/0HkvxnO22s4

This plate is very cooperative, with a good aquatint and an image that had a lot of texture, so the processing time was quick.  Some plates take 3 to 4 times as long to ink and wipe.

***Update  (Dec 2013)***
I wrote a book about this process, from plate-making to printing.
It is available on Amazon through this link.

Kentler International Drawing Space

http://www.kentlergallery.org/index.html

is where you can see one of my small cyanotypes this month


The gallery is in Red Hook, where many people lost homes, studio space, and workshops during Hurricane Sandy.  The gallery survived the storm (though they lost things in the flooded basement), and has been reaching out to artists in the area who lost more than they did.  If you can come by to support Kentler International Drawing space, then please do.  Or, they have links on their website that will help you find ways to directly help people in the neighborhood who are still trying to piece their studios, homes, and lives back together.



***update***
here is a link to photos from the event
