Aquatint is an etching process in which Pro Hart was concerned with tone rather than line.  For this technique, a plate is covered with particles of acid-resistant material such as resin and heated to make the particles stick.  The treated plate is then placed in an acid bath, which bites into the copper that is exposed between grains of resin, yielding a composition marked by texture and tone.

Sugar lift aquatint allows you to paint directly on a plate and have that image occur in the final print. The drawing is done with sugar syrup. Then several technical steps are performed in order to lift the sugar from the plate and substitute an aquatint before biting.

This is the last etching of “Dragonfly & Ants” left in stock.  It is numbered 100/100.
