Etching Printing Press [BACK TO PREVIOUS PAGE]

What is an Etching and how is it made, see this image 2 of 3 with the next image 3 of 3

This is a hand drawn image by John Olsen on to a metal etching plate; the next step is to prepare the etching plate, then the plate is inked and manually rolled and pressed onto a sheet of fine art rag paper, the use of traditional methods and materials on Maxes antique – vintage manual etching presses yield the end result for himself and John, it’s a collaboration of passion for art by the artist and printer, these etchings are stunning in every way. Please see the next 2 images.
