As you can see a couple of posts ago I recently put together a Thai Cookery Book. These prints are linked to that, they are of the illustrations I did for the 'Herbs and Spices' section in the book. They are all drypoint prints, however, the first 3 are done using a plastic drypoint plate and the last 3 are done using a metal drypoint plate.
You can see the different quite visibly, how the plastic prints are quite a bit sharper than the metal. The metal prints have a more grainy feeling to them i think.
The colour is added through the process of 'Chine Colle' where I stick tissue paper to the print in the press.
