Straw Herring II - Original Solarplate etching with Watercolour - Signed and Mounted.

This is an original Solarplate etching to which I've added some watercolour and ink to make it a completely one-off portrait. Beneath the print I've added the title and signed it. As this is a one off 'Artist's Proof' the letters A/P appear instead of this being a limited edition - it's completely unique.

A little bit about Solarplate Etching -

Solarplate etching uses specialised plates which are 'a light sensitized steel backed polymer material'. - they look just like metal plates but are covered with plastic on one side.
To etch your plate you first create an image. I took a copy of my original Straw Herring portrait and converted it to grey scale in Photoshop. The next step is to print your image onto acetate (remembering to print it in reverse if it’s important for the final prints).

Next you put the acetate onto the plate and expose the plate to UV light – either from the sun or from a UV exposure unit. After exposing the plate for a set time you can then wash off the unexposed bits of the plate – just by gently rubbing the plate under water the unexposed gum-like stuff will wash away, leaving an etched plate. You can then print, as with any etched printing plate.

The 3rd and 4th photos show the artwork in it's cream mount and cellophane, ready to be shipped!
The last photo shows my original Straw Herring portrait.

This artwork was created in a smoke free, pet free environment.
