ReCollection

Ask me anything   I am an Artist Printmaker who is always collecting things that catch my eye while staying in one place or while on the road.

My work draws upon personal identity, oral history and the landscapes I live in. Check out the work at www.nathanabel.com.

I made this mezzotint rocker sharpening jig yesterday. It consisted of buying a wood handle, cutting it to size, drilling holes, sanding it and staining it. My last step was actually sharpening the rocker.

Use a jig like this is by far the quickest way to get those sharp teeth.

However I will say that actually rocking out the mezzotint plate is an exercise in patience.
