Carborundum is used to grind down lithography stones. But its texture is ideal for creating rich tones when used on an etching plate.

In this 2-day intensive workshop participants will work on two 8"x10" plexi plates, using drypoint techniques to incise marks onto the plastic. Also a photo or drawing can be placed under the plastic to be used as a guide. The second piece of plastic is then placed in register over the first and acrylic and carborundum mixture is painted for atmospheric effect. The plates are then inked and printed over each other on an etching press.
