Sugar Lift Etching

A sugar lift is a technique within etching to create painterly effects on your image. Lots of different sugary solutions can be used for a Sugar Lift. These are then painted onto your etching plate, the plate then has an etching resistant ground applied to it and it is etched. The images shown here are all etchings produced using Sugar Lift techniques.


All images shown here have been produced at the workshop.
