I did this drypoint print today, instead of printing it the traditional way I photocopied as suggested by this site
I’m really happy with how it turned out! I will definitely have to do more in this style. I used to think, there's no point imitating traditional methods when using new ones but with this drypoint method you can’t see what you’re drawing too clearly (It’s scratched into clear plastic) and you can’t get the greatest control over the line work. So you have all this randomness to the image that can be cool. Plus you can’t really say the print is only a reproduction as the original is a clear plastic sheet! Hah!
Also here is some mail art, I contributed to
