Using the dog and figure images I then tried out a plate I had which had a layer of polyurethane on it by scribing into it and removing the dog image whilst leaving the figure as a line. Gosh I was so frustrated by the size limitations and the dog kind of ended up almost looking like a frog !!
I tried one other where I just made a template with the top part of a figure removed and then I painted tat area with acrylic etch ground. Then I sprinkled on some fine carborundum.
When that area had dried I applied another layer of acrylic ground and then sprinkled on some more fine carborundum. I was reasonably pleased with that proof but didn't take it any further.
