Top Hat (relief etching on zinc)

Artist: VIza Arlington
Title: Top Hat
Relief etching on zinc printed on Rives BFK
image size 1.5X4 inches
edition 50
signed and numbered

i have drawn directly on the zinc plate with a paint pen, then gave the plate an acid bath that left the lines that had drawn standing in relief. ink is rolled onto the surface and printed like a woodblock or linocut.
this was my first experiment with this process next time i will try using tusche and a pen and or brush the sharpie paint pen was kind of difficult to use but i was drawing on a very small plate.
