In the studio we have the facilities to do etching which is an intaglio printmaking technique. We use a plate covered evenly with an acid resistant wax, known as 'ground'. We then draw the image with etching tools, roulettes and anything else that removes the ground from the plate.
(Visit our online art gallery to see examples of our work.)
The marks and lines we draw into the ground reveal bare metal and when we place the plate into an acid bath, the acid 'bytes' the exposed areas.
