Polymer Etchings

"I develop the etching plate with the sun's exposure.  No hazardous acid baths are used in the developing process, as in the case with traditional printmaking processes, e.g. copperplate or steel plates artists like Rembrandt van Rijn used in the 1500's. For months I experimented with different "polymer" plates until, through trial and error, I found the correct plate, giving me the results I desired.  With this type of developing, I can also use my photographs and transform them into one-of-a-kind fine art etchings. The limited editions are small (no more than 50 etchings are printed from 1 plate), making this a unique and exclusive piece of investment art."

Drypoint Etchings

A printmaking technique of the intaglio family, in which an image is incised into a plate (or "matrix") with a hard-pointed "needle" of sharp metal or diamond point. In principle the method is practically identical to engraving

Ground Etchings

A form of printmaking achieved by drawing into hard- / softground on a copperplate, which then gets developed by placing it in an acid bath to burn away the areas which were not covered by the ground, exposing the lines you see

 

Encaustic art

The method of applying melted beeswax, mixed with pigment onto a surface with a heat torch, "burning it in".... no brushes or ink used here..."
