Etchings

Printed from a copperplate in which I have created the picture on the plate through etching in Ferric Chloride acid. The frontside of the plate is covered with a ground in which I draw the picture. When drawing in the ground the marks frees the copper from the ground and the acid bites. These bites makes a picture in the plate. The backside of the plate has to be covered otherwise the acid bites at that side to. When ready I ink the plate and print the plate by hand (hand pulled) on a damped high quality acid free paper. After one print the plate is inked again, a new damped paper is placed on the printing press and is printed. After printing  the ready print is dried under pressure for a week so both paper and in becomes really dry. If the ready print is approved by me I number and sign it by hand. Every print is an original.
