   Spend 3 hours at Cascabel Press with Ray Bidegain printing an edition of small prints from your work. Think of small prints or even a great set of handmade greeting cards. Ray will make the printing plate in advance from your digital file so this introduction to printmaking will be all about being on the press and making prints. You can look forward to the following topics:

  • Ink selection, mixing, and preparation
  • Final preparation of your printing plate
  • Tearing paper down and creating a wet pack for printing.
  • Setting up the Takach etching press for photogravure.
  • Inking and wiping the plates
  • Pulling your prints on the press (the best part by far)
