Carborundum aquatint is a painterly intaglio process achieving a wide tonal range without acid, rosin or toxic chemicals usually associated with traditional aquatint. Carborundum grit in various degrees of texture from course to very fine is mixed with acrylic medium and brushed on to either acrylic or mat board plates. When dry, the plate is inked and wiped like a traditional intaglio plate. The use of Plexiglas makes multi-plate registration very simple. The wiping of ink from a carborundum plate does not discolor ink as is common with zinc or copper plates. The instructor, in a long career as a master printer, has introduced this technique to artists such as Joan Mitchell and Emily Mason and examples of their prints will be shown.
