The following info on the Etching art process is by the artist-
Etching was introduced in the early 1500’s and as a method of printmaking, it is, along with engraving, the most important technique for old master prints, and remains in use today.
Etching is a process which uses acid to make marks in a metal plate. Once the plate has been etched by the artist the whole plate is inked up and then wiped to remove the surface ink from the plate, leaving ink in the incised areas only. The paper is dampened so that, under pressure, it will be squeezed into the inked recesses of the plate.
This limited edition of copper plate etchings are signed, numbered and can be commissioned to be hand tinted by the artist, Pauline Bewick, in her Kerry Studio.
