The courses teach the basic principles on steel plates, using liquid hard grounds and acrylic spray grounds to create tonal areas. The plates bite in a copper sulphate and cooking salt solution.


This technique is an effective alternative to traditional etching methods. It offers a wide range of creative options within a much safer working environment for the artist.
