This palm tree etching print with aquatint (a.k.a. silk mezzotint or silk collograph,) is an original hand pulled botanical print from a small edition of 15. The image area is 5 1/8" x 7 5/8" with generous borders, printed on BFK Rives archival printmaking paper using Graphic Chemical oil based etching ink, pencil signed and numbered. Prints are released/sold at random. Specific number requests not available. This edition is subject to an incremental pricing structure, with prices increasing as the edition sells out.

Unlike a "reproduction" (gicleé, offset, computer print-outs), this image was conceived and executed solely as an etching — it is not a "reproduction" of an artwork originally created in another medium, such as a painting or a drawing. This is an ORIGINAL print, not a "reproduction". This type of etching is also referred to as a "silk aquatint or silk mezzotint". It is a non-acid method of working a print plate where the image is created by painting with whitened acrylic medium on a black silk surface backed with plastic, to produce a variety of tones & textures. The plate is then inked, wiped (like a metal plate), and printed on an etching press. An etching plate can take hours, days, even weeks to "get right", before the actual printing even begins. Each print in the edition of 15 is subtly different, as each is inked and printed individually with great attention given to the quality of each print, and each print is considered an original work of art. Once the edition is printed, the matrix (the etching plate) is discarded. The etching plate is not the artwork, but simply a tool for creating the artwork.

PLEASE NOTE: This print does NOT include framing or matting. The photo of the framed art is only to suggest a style of framing.
