I took an intaglio class last semester, my first time doing any kind of etching! This was our third project I think? A soft ground etching. I placed leaves and thread on the plate, then ran it through our press. All of the textures were imprinted onto the plate.  I printed a couple of versions. Here are two of those versions:

Magenta ink on cream paper (colors are a little off)


Leaf detail


And my favorite one! Dark brown ink, printed on a Van Dyke of leaves that I did. (Van Dyke is like a cyanotype sun print, but with brown instead of blue)


C & C welcome! Thanks for looking!
