Final week of etching course: Sugarlift.

Interesting process this one have been taught at The Royal Drawing School. Using sugary substances it is possible to etch a metal plate. Simply draw onto a greased surface then treat to biting through acids in usual technique. Aquatint applied afterwards will give varying depths of shade/darkness. Prints can be made in the usual way.
