These plates looked such fun, and full of potential .....
We had watched the u-tube demos of cherry soda printing and it all seemed straight forward. Two hours later, eight of us trying numerous techniques with aluminium foil and aluminium shim, lithographic crayons, soap and so forth had absolutely no result. We thoroughly enjoyed our coffee, double choc brownies and baby lamingtons, but enjoyed no printing results. A hoot really.
|This set of photographs are of the aluminium plates we prepared - |
once we tried to etch them the images disappeared completely.
|Nice photos though - images looked full of potential!|
After lunch, Fiona guided us into a printing exploration with copper sulphate and salt on small aluminium plates with much more success. A few prints worthy of re printing, many more which were exciting enough to lead onto other things in the future.
