These images are examples of my latest work which consists of drypoints printed from acrylic and archival foam core plates. Each method brings different results to the finished piece such as softer, bolder lines when using an acrylic plate or intense darks and rich tonal values when printing from foam core. An added benefit is eliminating the use of harsh chemicals.
