Etching is a 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 traditionally in acid, but in my case I use the less dangerous alternative of copper sulphate, in order to etch the line into the metal. 'Aquatinting' is the process of adding areas of tone. As this is a zinc plate, a spray aquatint is applied over the line etch to give a texture that can then be further etched in the copper sulphate.

As prints are made individually by hand, please expect slight variation in detail and ink density, which makes every print unique.
