Description

Drifting smootly through the air, hot air balloons have a magic about them. Slightly disconcerting though, seeing, and hearing, the large flame blasting hot air into the balloon!

This etching has been made on a copper plate as a mirror image and printed by means of an etching press using a process that has changed little since Rembrandt’s day 400 years ago. Every etching is inked by hand and is thus an unique and original artwork. I like to leave some ink on the plate in this etching to give the background some tone and since every etching is individually inked, prints will vary slightly. I do my best to select prints that represent the one photographed as closely as possible.

It has been printed on Somerset Velvet handmade paper from St Cuthbert’s Mill in the UK using high quality professional etching ink. The paper has a soft cream colour.

The etching measures 9 x 6 cm (3.5” x 2.4”) and comes with a mat (mount) that's the same colour as the paper measuring 13 x 18 cm (5" x 7").

It has an edition of 45 and is signed and numbered. A leaflet will also be enclosed explaining how the etching was made.

If you'd like to see how the etchings are made, see this link: http://atelier28.blogspot.com/p/how-etching-is-made-hoe-een-ets-gemaakt.html

I also make etchings and other artwork in commission, so check out: www.atelier28.net
