Drawing for Alyse Bernstein printing demo

Plate with gum Arabic and water drawing by Stella untalan

Artist Alyse Bernstein invited me to be part of a demo she As going to print with her intern Anna.

I’ve had a chance to experiment with Gum Arabic as a drawing ink. It was a very interesting experience making four drawings. It’s a substance that requires drawing quickly. It’s important to finish drawing before the gum dries so the whole drawing can be seen.

The results are based on the suspension of the gum in water and how it pools and disperses. I’m looking forward to the results.
