The etching process, a centuries-old art form used by Rembrandt, involves many steps to produce a finished product.
The zinc or copper plate is first prepared by covering the polished surface wth asphaltum. Lines of the artist's drawing are then scratched through this covering to expose the metal. A nitric acid bath is then used to bite or "etch" these exposed lines to achieve the desired depth needed to produce a satisfactory print.
After beveling the edges of the "bitten" plate, thick ink is wiped into the lines of the drawing and then wiped off very carefully. The inked plate and a damp piece of paper are then pulled through a press, with extreme pressure, which transfers the inked lines from plate to paper.
After drying the print, the artist then hand tints each etching with transparent watercolor. Each etching is part of a limited edition, so they are signed and numbered by the artist.
You will also notice that as each "print" is pulled and tinted separately, each will be slightly different, and therefore quite original.
With reasonable care, this permanent art form will last hundreds of years.
