Original prints are not reproductions.They are original works of art, conceived and created by an artist who is deliberately using his chosen medium to create an effect which could not be achieved in any other way. As such they have a vitality and clarity which reproductions can very seldom achieve. The main processes are etching, lithography and screen printing.
Etching and Aquatint: Etching was first used by artists, including Durer, in the early 16th cent. The image is created by the controlled erosion of the surface of a metal plate by acid. First the plate is covered with a specially prepared acid-resistant ground of black wax or ground. The design is then drawn on the black ground with a sharp point or "etching needle', to reveal the metal below. Aquatint is used to create tonal areas. In this process a dusting of finely grained resin is fused onto the plate by heat to leave a grained pattern of bare metal. The prepared plate is then immersed in nitric acid which bites into the metal; the length of time the acid remains on the bare metal governs the depth of the line bitten. The deeper the line, the darker it will print.Those parts of the design which have been sufficiently worked can be 'stopped out' with varnish to allow for further biting of the remaining areas. When printing, the plate is inked and wiped so that the ink remains only in the etched lines or areas.It is then printed under pressure onto dampened paper, producing the plate mark which is common to both etchings and engravings.
Once printed the individual prints are numbered up to the edition size and then the plate is distroyed.
