My latest experiments:

Recently I have dived into exploring the printmaking genre of Artist Books. It is a way to expand from 2 dimensional to 3 dimensional printmaking. I use existing or make new prints and convert them into something 3 dimensional. Here is one example. There are some more under My pictures // Artist Books.

I have started to work with a very old technique from the 15th century - Mezzotint.

A very time consuming technique since you create burrs on an empty plate with a rocker tool. I do that in at least 20 different angles and then when printing it the burrs catches ink and will produce a very soft and rich blackness over the whole plate. When I have reached full blackness then I scrape and burnish these burrs down and through that create the motive. It's very time consuming but very rewarding. Nothing beats the rich blackness in a mezzotint!
