The actual copied plate looks much better than the photograph. This method is clearly not for the impatient as the process took 48 hours to get a 0.75mm plate. the electrotype process was originally used in the 19th. century to make copies of valuable silver ware for museums as well making copies of printing plates. Has a lot of potential for making innovative collagraph plates and making more robust copies of delicate plates.
Looking forward to seeing how the copy compares to the original when printed. Also looking forward to making some more sculptural forms using the electrotyping process.
