Solar plate etching is a versatile and non-toxic printmaking process that produces results similar to fine photo-etchings. Photopolymer plates are exposed to a variety of film media: photographic transparencies (traditional darkroom, digital, or photocopy transparency) or images hand-drawn on acetate or combinations of both. After exposure, the plates are developed, etched in water, cured and printed on an etching press. This environmentally friendly printmaking technique does not require the use of acid or other harmful chemicals and it is a quick and versatile printmaking technique.

Printmaking experience is recommended but not required.
