***zinc plate etching with aquatint, tinted with GNU Image Manipulation Program (GIMP).
click image for a better view.
this is a zinc plate etching i'm working on right now. i just did a round of aquatint on it, but it didn't seem to take (the areas i wanted black didn't go black - i suspect the acid is too watered down), so i'm going to have to try again. sorry, that last sentence went all over the place. any suggestions?
