Printing at Atlantic Pyramid

I spent the day at Atlantic Pyramid and it was absolute lovely. I did an etching with polymer class with Gretchen Schermerhorn with about four other artists. We all had various photos that we learned how to expose on the plate.  After a lunch break, we printed or hearts away.

Gretchen redid one of my images as I didn't follow directions and missed one step so the first odd came out a bit funky. Luckily she fixed it and now my plate is perfect.

I love my final prints! Can't wait to get back up and print some more.
