Bridget Farmer Original Dry Point Etchings: Various Designs


Bridget Farmer's love of birds is captured in each of these original dry point etchings, always of birds Bridget has personally connected with.
A dry point etching is a print made from a plate, often copper, that has been directly scratched into with a sharp point. The plate is then inked up, that is, rubbed with a thick layer of ink, with the excess wiped away to leave ink only in the scratched lines. The plate is then placed onto a press bed with dampened paper on top and felt blankets to cushion the work. It is all pulled through pressured rollers which transfers the ink from the plate onto the paper. For each subsequent print the inking up process is repeated.

Each print is original and printed by hand on Hahnemulhe cotton rag paper.  
Measurements: Image Size - 5 x 5cm, Paper Size - 11.5 x 15 cm.
Prints are unframed.
