This palm tree print is silk etching (a.k.a. silk mezzotint or silk collograph). It is an original hand pulled 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 print is a done using 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.
