Etching

Etching is a method of creating an original work of art on a sheet of metal - in my case I use copper. I draw my image into a hard ground that coats the metal, which is then etched with acid. The plate is then covered in ink, and by a very careful process of wiping the image is revealed, ready for printing through an etching press.
