Etching of miners wives at riot

Week 2 of etching course at Royal Drawing School: Hard Ground Etching.

First etching using an aluminium plate that is smoked using a flame. Metal cleaned with chalk before rolling ink to an even honey colour. Plate transferred still hot to a precariously wedged in angle at the bottom of an infinitely black chimney. Drawing process in stages from here.
