This week, I will be on Rogers tv Grand River Living, being interviewed while printing an etched plate and attempting to explain the process of creating the plate. I haven't seen the finished interview with Anandi yet, so I am not sure if my explanations were clear. I am not usually very good in these scenarios but was made so comfortable by Anandi and Derek that I have a feeling it will be a good, if brief, portrayal of the process.
Today I stumbled upon two good stop motion videos which show the creation of an etching from start to finish.
Dafna Sartiel's stop motion video here for the show 'Print-Making-Of/ Disorder'
and Joe Carr of Antiquated Press's stop motion video here (through Printeresting) for the making of 'Stars'.
