Monotype no. 8: Charbonnel water based etching ink on Stonehenge paper. A portrait of my sweet tabby Billie, who is sick today.

Water based etching ink is much better to work with than water based relief ink. The ink was difficult to roll onto the plate evenly, but it had a long working time. Unlike the water based relief ink, it didn’t lift excessively from the plate or leave mounds of unwanted inks near the areas that were wiped away.
