Documenting the creating of a new Mezzotint print of a space shuttle launch. In this video I prepare a copper plate and rock it with a Mezzotint rocker. I scrape, burnish and finally print the plate. Color is added using relief ink and making a “rainbow roll” onto the plate. I will make a follow up video showing the completed series when I complete it.
