Introducing the mezzoette!

Introducing the mezzoette!

The mezzoette: a hand operated tool used to draw on a mezzotint texture, it was developed by Peter Braune to accurately repair mezzotinted and aquatinted plates. It is ideal for printmakers who do dry-point, mezzotints, or deep aquatints and want a rich black. To use the mezzoettte, hold the mezzoette in your hand like a pencil and roll the burred tip across the plate. Each mezzoette comes with interchangeable bits.

For anyone who will be in Portland for the Southern Graphics Council, Peter will be demonstrating the mezzoette at the vendor fair exhibit hall!

Each mezzoette is $500. Phone and email orders only.

Made in Vancouver, Canada.
