The Viking Drypoint

This is the drypoint print of the 'Big Red Beardy' viking, mentioned in the previous post. Its A3 (29.7 x 42cm) and made on a sheet of plastic, which I've not used before. Its very sensitive to any little marks made with a needle; from very fine gentle lines to deep gouged strokes, and also sandpaper. Its much more responsive than zinc, which I used before. I assume not so many prints can be made with it as it may wear out due to it being a softer material.
