More Acetate Drypoints

Here are 2 more prints done on acetate, using the now trusty pasta machine. It is interesting the different techniques that are needed and the different mind set involved in creating the images.

Technically speaking, it looks like it may be better just to go ahead and get metal plates. Acetate is fine for quick and dirty printing, but 4-5 prints is the max, and inking is tricky. The texture of the acetate isn’t like copper or zinc and so the tones are harder to control. Acetate also has a problem in that it absorbs water so it will take a bit more research to find the best approach, maybe soaking before inking will help.
