Gum Bichromate Workshop

Making gum prints on gesso panels rather than paper. NOW 15% DISCOUNT!

November 8 – 10, 2019 — Explore how to take Gum Bichromate into a contemporary mixed media direction, with Francis Baker.

In this alternative process workshop, learn how to make Gum Bichromate prints on panels and experiment with layers of colored pigments to create a textural, unique piece of art.

You will also learn the techniques involved in creating a traditionally gessoed panel using rabbit-skin glue and marble dust.

Gum Bichromate is a multi-layered printing process that is traditionally printed on paper. However, in this unique workshop, you will learn how to make a gum print on prepared gesso panels rather than paper.

Using these panels, a gum printer can add sanding, scratching, engraving, and wet sanding to their toolbox of analog effects to help tell the story of their artwork.

If you want to delve deeper into alternative processes for printing, this is the workshop for you. Printing on heavyweight papers will also be presented.
