Solar plate & Photo-etching

Photo-etching course using Hydra-coat zinc plate and solar plate, both being ideal for photographic and autographic imagery; an added advantage of working with the

Hydra-coat plate is that after exposure it can then be re-worked using conventional

 etching processes, where as the advantage of solar plate is it can hold an extremely

high resolution, and only requires water to develop.
