Making Miniprints 3
I found that I could get a finer line by applying a layer of the Lascaux acrylic hard ground to the thin sheet of aluminium that I had. I applied this with a pro arte brush which is soft, a bit like a watercolour brush but somewhat firmer. You need to apply that to the plate in a couple of thin layers in opposing directions. It only takes about 15 mins to dry. I have never measured the exact time as I usually do something else while its taking place.
