Getting A Proper Education

This weekend I'll be taking another workshop at Zea Mays Printmaking Studio, this time learning about doing drypoint on plastic plates. I'm looking for methods that will allow for more spontaneous linework, that will combine well with moku hanga and that can be done in my home studio. I'm not sure if plastic plate drypoint can be printed without a press, but I'm hoping that my ball-bearing baren might work. At the very least I'll learn how to properly wipe a plate.

Hi Annie: please let us know how that ball bearing baren works for intaglio! I've been thinking of getting one as I've also been thinking that a good one might pull off intaglio...Patti P-C
