Solar Plate Etching

Register here

Solar plate etching is a simple, safe, and fast approach to traditional etching. Using photo-based transparencies or hand-drawn transparencies create plates that will be editioned as multiple prints. Solar plate etching does not require the use of ground, acids, or solvents. It is exposed with UV light and developed with ordinary water.
