Once in a while I try to work in a different material for a project. this time it’s with zinc plates. I don’t have a printing press, although I’m seriously contemplating buying one in the near future. A small one for my workspace. But marks must be made and so now it’s the metal plates that are the finished pieces. I use etching tools and anything that’ll leave a mark. I found that my sharpening stone does some nice scratches. I use a dipping pen to put down acrylic ink.
