Intaglio

Myles Dunigan (PR '10) loves painstakingly crafted scratches filled with thick ink. And the results are gorgeous. On the door–tables at Second Life, Myles demonstrates the process of covering copper plates with printmaking ink the consistency of tar and gently wiping away the excess with the palm of your hand. Experimenting with copper and aluminum plates, folks immediately grabbed burins, scribes and scrapers to carve images directly into the metal plates. Through the workshop everyone had the chance to make a few plates and bring home at least a dozen prints (christmas presents anyone?) Not, of course, before the group traded prints to start their budding art collection.
