Drypoint is a direct way of working on metal or Perspex plate which is printed “intaglio” – like an etching. The process lends itself to lively, expressive mark making, using needles, roulettes, sandpapers and power tools. Chine Collè is an interesting way to add colour.

An accessible and versatile print process using collaged textures. A variety of textures, paints and carborundum available. The scope for colour experimentation is endless – including the exciting viscosity printing.
