I design and scratch each motif into a plastic etching plate. I then cover the plate in ink and I wipe this off selectively to achieve the textures and depths of colours for this print. The inked up plate is then placed under damp paper and pressed using Ivy, my Hawthorn 405 etching press. The phenomenal pressure between the steel rollers leaves and embossed image of the etching plate and transfer the ink from the plate to the paper. There will be variations between each print, making each one unique. 

Thank you very much for looking at my cards and prints.
