Also, today I’ve been making intaglio prints in a lo-tech but very satisfying way. Want a go? Use the shiny side of cereal-box type cardboard, and scratch the design in using the point of a compass/a biggish sewing needle/the point of an awl. Apply printing ink with a scraper (a bit of card will do) so that it goes into the scratches, then rub off the ink from the rest of the plate using a rag. Put through a printing press with damp paper. Gorgeous!
