Artist At Work
Etching was made on a copper plate.To It was first rolled with wax. I then drew my picture on the plate by scraping away the areas I wanted the ink to appear. The plate was then dipped in acid and the acid ate away the non-waxed areas. I then cleaned and inked the plate. Ink is pushed into the etched grooves, then the surface is wiped clean with muslin cloth, leaving only the etched areas retaining ink. The etching was then placed on an etching press and printed on 300g quality Fabriano paper.
There are only three original prints remaining (not curently for sale). The product I am selling is a high quality print of the etching.
THIS ITEM IS NOT THE ORIGINAL PRINT IT IS A HIGH QUALITY PRINT.
