Cathey December

My original intaglio prints are made by creating textures and grooves below the surface of zinc & copper plates. The technique I use most often are acid etching, aquatinting, needling and embossing. On average it takes approximately 40 - 80 hours to complete my design in the plate. The plates are hand inked for each printing. Prints are pulled on wet, rag, acid free paper which is subjected to the great pressure of my hand cranked etching press. The resulting images are then water colored, signed and numbered.
