Elsa At Goleta Beach, 1960 - Three Monotypes

Taking my Lindstrom Machinery etching press on its first run, our San Anselmo printmaking group got together to do some initial experiments with Akua intaglio inks and liquid pigments, making monotypes with polycarbonate .030 and PETG plates printing onto dry Rives BFK 100% cotton French mouldmade paper. Doing drypoint on the plastic plates didn't seem to result in strong enough line work, so I hand inked later. Damp paper would probably have worked better.  The Akua liquid pigments also didn't work as well as desired either, so the prints were finished with pastels, which worked beautifully.  More experimentation to come!
