An etching begins with a metal plate (usually copper) that has been coated with a waxy substance called a “ground”. Pro Hart would then create his composition by drawing through the ground to expose the metal. The plate is then immersed int he acid bath, which “bites” or chemically dissolves the exposed lines. For printing, the ground is removed, ink is introduced int he the incised lines, and the plate is wiped clean. The plate is covered with a dampened paper and run through a press under great pressure in order to force the paper into the lines, resulting in the raised characteristic of etching. To create the colour each etching is then hand painted.
