Rather than try copper plates, which is a challenge, look at photopolymer plates. The new silicone plates are very nice to work with and will give good results in intaglio.

I have only managed to make one copper plate and I decided you need the skills of a photographer of a century ago for the production of the negative and the skills of a master printmaker to produce the copper plate. They are beautiful images however. Is photo-etching considered as photo-alt by the list? It falls between two schools as printmakers sneer at the use of photography to create the image and photographers regard the production of a metal plate as non-photographic. I do a lot of photo-etching work and consider it my substitute for photogravure. Hellena----- Original Message -----

It's like going back to childhood and "coloring" with little sticks of color. ( only the little sticks cost a lot more )
