Non-silver processes will be emphasized including blue print, photocopy transfer, as well as hand painting and acrylic transfers.
Text methods will be demonstrated - hand printing with inks, rubbings, rubber stamp, collage, old-fashioned typewriter as well as computer generated text. Examples will be shown. Surface treatments will be introduced such as coating with wax and hand painting with encaustic (pigment in hot wax).
