Phew. Haven't done aquatint in two years, so it was nice to have a go at that again. This method was different from the conventional resin method I've used before, this plate had an airbrushed acrylic surface. Using this method, I noticed one massive pro: the lineart didn't disappear, as opposed to with the old method, with which you would essentially be doing a blind drawing in the end.
I have been bitten by a pretty-pattern bug.
