On Friday I attended a fun Inky Fingers afternoon organized by Colleen Ross. People made such amazing etchings that I felt a bit embarrassed by my quick & dirty effort.
The Tree (dry point etching, collaged paper from an old envelope)
I used the point of an awl to make the spiral dots (using a hammer). In fact, the funny line you see on the left is because I hammered a bit vigorously and cracked my perspex plate. I used a sewing tool (for tracing patterns) to get the other dotted lines, and rough sandpaper for the grass.
