Each etching is an original. That's because I add new color for each print. I clean the plate after each press. So small differences can be the result.
I start by drawing the design on a copper plate covered with an etch.Then the plate is placed in an acid bath, and the acid etches where I have removed the etch. The plate is usually inserted back into the acid bath several times. I often use aquatint to create structure in print. So it may take several days for the disc to be ready for printing.The copper plate is then applied to colors, and I use many colors for each print. Then I moisturize the paper and put the plate on top. Then it is passed through the press under high pressure.
This print has a print run of 40. Each etching is printed in a limited print run, so the number 5/40 means that it is the fifth print of a total of 40 print.
I send the print, without a frame, in an envelope, protected by hard cardboard.
Frame is not included, but the print will fit a standard frame 30 x 40 cm.
The print measures:15 x 25 cm.
The paper measures:25 x 35 cm.
Every single print is numbered and signed by me
I will add that I cannot guarantee you will get the number that is in the photo!
