Hand-pulled drypoint print.


This is my first attempt at making a drypoint print using a plastic plate as a matrix. I began by making lines in the plate using a sharp etching tool. I then rolled ink over it and worked it into the grooves. I wiped away surplus ink and created lighter tones by wiping some areas more thoroughly. I then placed a piece of dampened Hahnemuhle paper over the plate and ran it through my printing press. The result is a print that is one-of-a-kind, albeit in a very small variable edition.


Image size: 12.2cm x 19.0cm. Paper size: 21.0cm x 28.2cm.


This print will be wrapped in tissue paper and shipped in a very sturdy tube to ensure it gets to you safely.
