Quarrel of sparrow

Cut out Aluminium plate etching with aquatint 

The plates are cut out by hand using a jewellery saw, this is a lengthy and intricate process. Then the plates coated with wax and immersed in a bath of copper sulphate many many times to etch the lines and then tones of the image.

The colours are adding 'a la poupe' this means adding colours during the inking stage and blending them during the wiping of the plate. Each print takes about 1 hour to print. 

Printed as part of a very small edition of 12

Printed on Hahnemuhle 300 gsm paper (size 14" & 16")

Image size approx 11”x13”
