INKING UP Intaglio style

  1. Mix the ink so it is at a dropping consistency
  2. Use the little squeegee to work in the ink, revolving the plate as you go
  1. Work ink in with the dabber
  1. Have ½ m of scrim in a loose pad
  1. Work in ink, think of Van Gogh’s Starry night , turning ink in
  1. Now slowly start to work ink out. Turn the plate, turn it again removing slowly ink off the surface but not out of the grooves
  1. A final polish with tissue paper
