Elizabeth looking.

Elizabeth is concentrating on the wet drawing on the grained glass. When it dries out then you decide if its ready to use as the positive transparency for making a solarplate. We expose the art work over solarplate for 1min 30 sec under UV light. Next we expose the plate covered by aquatint screen for another 1 min 30 sec. The fine squiggles of the aquatint screen provide tooth for the ink.
