Solar etching

For solar etching, images are transferred from a clear medium, like acetate, on to the plate using bright sunlight or UV light. Plates are then developed in water and again exposed to the sun or UV light to cure. The plates are then inked up, wiped and printed in the same way as etchings.Retro

‘Retro vase’ was exhibited at the 2014 Society of Women Artists Annual Exhibition at the Mall Galleries London.
