‘Pink Ladies Slippers II’ is a 3 plate soft-ground etching and engraving hand printed on 100% rag paper. I hiked with my metal plates to where this plant lives and created the plates on location. After a few days of drawing in the woods, I bring the plates home to my studio to etch in nitric acid and print a working proof. then i engrave where I feel it needs it . when I’ve created what I want I start printing the limited edition of 95 signed, numbered, and hand-pulled prints .
Pink Ladies Slippers – II
$350.00 – $395.00
It usually takes me a few years to print an edition , I print a few and put them in galleries, and then work on something new or print a few of something else. varying what I’m printing keeps me interested in the process. mats are 2ply antique white rag, 3” on top and sides and 3 1/2″ on bottom with a color accent added. The back is acid-free foam core
