Hoof Scratches on Recycled Plastic - Printmaking

Sometimes the most interesting dry point plate has to be found rather than made.

I've been working with plates that describe movement for my printmaking unit this semester. Figurative representations of movement are something that I produced a few years ago, so I'm looking to try something new and show movement through a memory. Put simply, I want to study marks made in consequence of movement. 

The plate above was once a forklift slip (a piece of polyethelene that sits on forklift forks to prevent cargo damage) that was scratched before I rode my horse over it. The proofs and ghost prints were pulled on A1 black Magnani paper with white ink and white BFK with black ink.
