Intaglio and Relief Printing

I have been using Printmaking techniques for over fifteen years to express some of my creative visual ideas.
I use traditional Intaglio and Relief techniques similar to those employed 500+ years ago. I use either ball ground wax, both hard and soft, or a liquid asphaltum that I brush onto the metal plate, then draw directly into the dried wax resist or pass a textural material over a soft ground to give an impression on the metal. I use a fine rosin powder that gently falls onto the plate, then heat the powder onto the metal to fuse it before putting it into a Edinburgh Etch for Aquatints. I use a Diamond Point stylus when drawing directly onto the metal which provides the most immediate way to keep ink on the plate.

I've made the switch to water-soluble printing inks, preferring them over oil based inks for their ease in clean up and are better for my lungs. BFK printing paper is my paper of choice. I've found its absorbancy of ink to be of the highest quality.

The Community Arts Center (CAC) in Wallingford, PA is where I do my printing. Here they have a 18"x40" Sturges Etching Press and a 24"x48" Dickerson Combination Press.

I decided to set up a Etsy page for use as a online portfolio and shop to sell my prints.

I also collaborate with my wife Kelly on etched jewelry pieces. You can see those pieces at her Etsy shop:
