Intro to Zinc Etching
September 9 - October 28 (8 weeks)

Zinc plates are etched rapidly in a bath of Copper Sulphate and water producing crisp lines. Zinc can be etched deeply for viscosity printing and blind embossing effects and can yield interesting textural results not possible with copper etching. Come learn these basic techniques of etching on zinc plate. No prior etching experience required.
