Etchings - dremels and photo/polymer

More recently, I've been doing playing around with dremels (my new favourite tool, much to the chagrin of my fellow printmakers - it sounds like the dentist's drill) on plastic and etching plates.

Trapped


Then I went back to photo etching, and discovered polymer etching which gives an embossed print.

I made these prints for the centenary of the October Revolution.




Lithographs and wood cuts

I spent six months doing lithographs with Simon Burbidge this year working from newspaper images.
