All drawings completed

Rachel deity
We have finally finished drawing and etching all the line works on 14 plates.

Now it's time to add tones to them by aquatint - an intaglio technique that uses powdered rosin to be stuck to the surface of the copperplates acting as an acid resistant to create different tonal effect.

We use two plates per image, one being the main plate shown here with most information such as basic line drawings and tones and the other being the tones only to add colours and depth.

So even though we have 14 images, there are 28 copperplates.

This is actually still a first part of this project (though I felt like we've come a long way)
We are just heading to busier time ahead!
