COMET 67P ACID ETCHING ON DIBOND ALUMINIUM



DETAIL - Emily Godden (2014) Comet 67 P Surface Feedback [Etching on dibond aluminium printed on Fabriano Accademia paper] 



Comet 67 P Surface Feedback is a printmaking project to document two surface sections of Comet 67 P. By using images of two of the proposed landing sites of the Comet  I was able to create two 62 cm x 61 cm etchings onto dibond aluminium. 

I was initially intrigued by the lines embedded into the surface and wanted to expose these lines, I started by drawing out these lines onto the plate after going through the process of cleaning the dibond aluminium with amonia and whitning and then applying BIG acrylic ground (with a short stay on the hot plate). Once drawn I then proceeded to take off the ground where I had drawn these lines in order to expose the aluminium so when etched by the acid these lines would be etched. Due the size of the plate I had to adopt a slightly unorthodox technique of poring the acid onto the plate, this technique resulted in a variety of depths in the etched lines, with the acid hitting the middle of the plate the most, the result is a deeper etch in the middle of the plates which fades towards the edges. 

See below for a GIF which documents the process of creation of the prints and underneath for a selection of images of the finished prints, printed on Fabriano Accademia paper.

  1. Most heartburn sufferers who work to hold their side effects under control by and large have less issues, yet there are a few special cases. When you experience the ill effects of perpetual indigestion, which has been left untreated, you might wind up with heartburn breathing issues that can be not kidding in the event that you keep on overlooking them. http://www.mordocrosswords.com/2016/03/drawing-with-acid.html
