New Works: Etching video January 2012

Off and on for a number of weeks now, I've been working on 4 new etchings.  Here's an 8 minute video of how these plates are printed. This is a 14th Century method for making artworks on paper.  What a grand, time consuming process.  There is nothing quick about creating hand-made prints.

I'm with Mark Lunning, the master printer and owner of Open Press Ltd, Denver.  Mark is inking and printing two color plates with a Chine Colle (colored mulberry paper) added to the process.  The result is a three-color landscape print.  I'll be releasing this and 3 additional etchings very soon.
