Loraine and Chris Waites have been experimenting with the Gum Arabic technique to improve the quality and consistency of their results. There are several governing factors. One is to maintain the integrity of the paper plate over a larger number of prints. They believe they’ve made a breakthrough by using a brush technique rather than a roller to apply the ink to the Gum Arabic soaked paper. They will demonstrate this new technique (adapted from a workshop led by ceramic artist Brad) and there will be time to have a go. They will also bring along examples of the type of image that work well with this technique.
