Hi Ironbridge Printmakers

I just wanted to say thank you for your post on drypoint printmaking. I have very recently started experimenting with drypoint, after many years working on collagraphs.

I was struggling with how to make the kind of marks that would print well, and how to wipe the surface of drypoint plastic clean without removing ink from the incised lines. Thanks to your post, I can now concentrate on the creative possibilities of the technique rather than technical considerations.
