Drypoint Trials with a Pig

I made another experimental drypoint on acetate, this time one of the pigs.

The thin acetate plate and the graver after inking

I made 6 prints and each one was different. Different inking affected the result most as I kept the pressure on the press the same.


This is a run through with quite dark ink


Paler, with more wiping away plus watercolour tinting

The main problem seems to be keeping my grubby fingerprints off the plate.
