Hand pulled print on cotton paper, Habitat is a photo etching showing a cute bug making it’s home in crushed cans . The mono-print element is the actual bug which is inked up separately each time in red and carefully positioned on the etching plate for each print with the aid of tweezers. This resulted in a very short edition run as the bug objected to being put through the etching press. (Please note that the bug was already dead when I found it!!)

Each print is hand-pulled by me. This particular print is number 4 of a limited edition of 5.
The 7cm x 7cm plate is inked with quality oil-based intaglio and relief inks and printed with an etching press onto a 24cm x 18cm piece of quality Somerset cotton paper.

The print is signed, titled and numbered in pencil. It is also embossed with a small version of my workshop's logo. The embosser is also made by myself.

This artwork was conceived and created solely as an original fine art print. Unlike a gicleé print or any other computer print out, none of my prints are reproductions of a pre-existing painting or drawing .

I like to use top quality heavy weight paper (this one is Sommerset 100% cotton, Velvet, 300gm) so It is best not to roll up prints for posting, especially when the printing process results in a fair amount of embossing. I will therefore only ship my prints flat and protected with card.
