Workshop “Gum print” saturday 20\03\2021

posted in: Courses | 0
The gum print, or gum printing, is a technique that with relatively poor means (a photocopy, of shellac and gum arabic), allows us to create a very limited edition of prints.
The image that you decide to use with the “gum print” can be a drawing, a photograph, a collage. Excellent results are obtained with well-defined and contrasted images.

 

Preparation of materials:
Make a toner photocopy of the job you want to do with the gum print, ________________________________________
The print:
We then proceed to the printing: taking a Plexiglas, the photocopy and the gum arabic prepared the previous evening we start the work. You take two containers, in one you put the gum arabic, in the other tap water. With a sponge, the gum arabic is passed over the Plexiglas, which will act as support for the photocopy, so that the photocopy is then adherent to said support and does not come off during the inking phase.
The photocopy is then applied to the plexiglass and the gum arabic is passed over the entire surface of the image, in this way the toner will be receptive to the greasy ink while the part of the image that must remain white will reject the ink.
We will discover the rest together during the workshop.

Etching course

posted in: Courses | 0
The course is aimed at everyone, including even those who have no previous experience.
Etching is a very common chalcographic technique and consists in corrode a metal plate (zinc) with an acid, to obtain images to be transposed onto paper by means of inks.
Once the slab has been prepared, it is sprinkled with an protective varnish, then the design is engraved in the protective material with a point , to expose the metal in correspondence of the signs.
The plate is immersed in acid, starting the etching, which can be done several times, gradually uncovering the parts to be engraved, to obtain differently deep marks.
Printing takes place by means of the chalcographic press, first sprinkling the plate with ink and placing the paper to be printed on it.
We will find out everything else together.
A small edition is planned for each participant.

Printing workshop for children

The Monoprint

-The technique consists of creating an amage, which is painted onto a sheet of plexiglass in order to print it onto paper.This is done by applying light pressure with the palm of your hand. By this method, you get a copy of your image printed on the paper; this will, of course , be reversed compared to your original design.

We will use oil paints, which can be thinned with water, and prints wil be made on lightweight paper.

Recommended age: 6-13 years
Duration: one hour
cost: € 20 per participant (minimum number of three participants)
