Additional Information about the Print

Etched while Jeff was a visiting tutor at the Burslem School of Art.

Sugar-lift allows spontaneity of drawing on the plate.

The design is painted onto a zinc plate in a mixture of sugar and black gouache. It is left to harden before the plate is covered all over with a bitumen ground. After the ground has set, the plate is put in water, which dissolves the sugar and lifts the ground where the drawing is. The plate is then deeply etched, giving, when printed, a thick aquatint-like line.
