I used to do photogravures and aquatints, but have never heard of aqua gravure.

Re: Aqua gravure

New to me!

Funny how "broad" the results are. When I think "gravure" I usually think of the thinnest, finest lines possible!

Maybe they should call it something different, like Shaped Monoprints. . .?

Re: Aqua gravure

It is not really a monoprint.
Here is an aquagravure from "Corneille" A Belgian artist.
This aquagravure has an edition of 60.

Re: Aqua gravure

we used to do something like that cutting mats/ mat board and stacking them creating a relief, and then putting them (with a wet sheet of paper of course) and a lot of press blankets, through the press. It was called something else. Yeah, I think it looks nice.
