Product details

Laurence’s etching captures the exquisite airiness of the mystical creatures through the use of aquatint. This is a form of etching in which powdered, acid-resistant rosin is applied to the copper plate before exposing the plate to a mordant which bites into the copper. This technique creates tonal variations, giving a rich dimension to the print. Laurence completes the image by finely engraving the delicate structure of the gossamer wings with a dry point needle, before printing with blue-black ink.
