Four Trace Litho portraits

2014_07 four trace litho portraits

I experimented with Trace Lithos, a medium I noticed in a Gauguin exhibit in MoMA last year.  My professor demonstrated it to the class and I had fun with the spontaneity and accidental marks.

11″x14″ 2-plate intaglio etching, from a plastic plate, using photo-sensitive emulsion to transfer the two painting/drawings of ink and tusche on vellum.

In other words, I painted and drew the marks onto frosted translucent vellum, with a carbon-ink solution.  The drawings were then exposed to photo-sensitive emulsion-covered plastic plate.  The plates were then developed in a soda ash bath, and then inked and printed on top of each other on paper.
