Solar Etching: A Mini-Residency with SolPrint Studio in Baltimore
I recently had the opportunity to participate in a project-based mini-residency led by artists and printmakers Soledad Salamé and Randy Reiss McCormack at the SolPrint Studio in Baltimore, Maryland. Both are also experienced educators, who love to share their knowledge about Solar Etching, a simple, safe, and fast approach to etching and relief printing that does not use grounds, acids or solvents.
If you would like an introduction to Solar Etching, you may find this PowerPoint presentation I created helpful -- it explains and illustrates the process in detail, with images from my experience (Click on the image below to download the pptx document).
If you would like to know more about my experience, please feel free to contact me, or if you're interested in learning more about the mini-residencies, do reach out to the kind people at SolPrint Studios in Baltimore, who have also documented this wonderful experience here.
