Cultural Writing. Art. Crown Point Press master printer Emily York discusses aquatint, a form of etching used to create delicate washes, velvety blacks, and intricate layers of color impossible in other art media. Using 46 prints by 32 artists, she ties process directly to art and explains spit bite, sugar lift, soap ground, and water bite. She also details steel-facing and multiple plate printing, with step-by-step instructions for making your own aquatints. With two appendices: "Printing the Crown Point Way" by Kathan Brown and "Using Acid to Bite Plates" by Catherine Brooks. DVD included.
