Learn how to create prints from your drawings with drypoint during this taster session.
What will you learn?
Drypoint is a printmaking technique that creates a line-based image by using sharp tools to scratch into the surface of a plate. The style of this method lends itself well to loose drawing and expressive, fluid mark making.
Often confused with the process of etching, Drypoint is in itself an individual, standalone technique. It consists of drawing, or ‘engraving’, fairly deeply into the surface of the plate using specialist tools in order to create an image. Unlike etching there is no use of resists or mordants to bite the plate, making drypoint a simple way to create multiple intaglio prints.
