SOLARPLATE ETCHING
Solarplate etching is a recent alternative etching process that uses
sunlight and water instead of the traditional acids and grounds.  Developed
by master printmaker, Dan Welden this innovative approach is spontaneous and
easy, yet produces results which have attained the level of professionalism
by several artists to be accepted by the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Since the Solarplate is a light sensitized polymer, it accepts all kinds of
images. Artists may create with various forms of drawings and paintings on
acetate, photocopy or computer printouts on transparent film, with
photographs as positive transparencies, or they may consider painting
directly on the plate. Once the plates are prepared and developed, they are
ideal for editioning. Numbers of impressions may vary according to the
artwork and the person printing.
