    SHIM/Printmaking – Mezzotint is a collective which seeks to promote the works of international contemporary artists working in this highly specialized, centuries-old medium. Participating guild members create, curate, and fund exhibitions exclusively for its members.

    Mezzotint

    Mezzotint is an engraving technique developed in the seventeenth century which allows for thecreation of prints with soft gradations of tone and rich and velvety blacks.

     

    The process involves indenting the metal printing plate by rocking a toothed metal tool across the surface. Each pit holds ink, and if printed at this stage the image would be solid black. However the printmaker creates dark and light tones by gradually rubbing down or burnishing the rough surface to various degrees of smoothness to reduce the ink-holding capacity of areas of the plate.
