Collection: Etchings

Etching is a traditional print process that involves covering a metal plate in a thin ground and scratching the line work of the image into this. The plate is then emersed copper sulphate in order to etch the line into the metal. 'Aquatinting' is the process of exposing larger areas of the pate to the copper sulphate for differing amounts of time to create areas of tone. The plate is then 'inked up' and printed by hand using a specialist etching press. All prints are limited editions.
