Drypoint Etchings with Matt McInnes

Week 8 of NuSteel, we got to try our hand at some drypoint etchings.  Students based their images on a book they had read for English, resulting in a range of themes explored in these works.

Students worked hard at filing their plexiglass plates, sketching and then reversing an image, and etching it into the plexiglass using a variety of etching tools.

The results were impressive… and I will post them for your viewing pleasure very soon!
