PVC etching by Jet James

Pvc etching with a diecut Xpress machine



This unique technique of PVC etching was first pioneered by the late Peter Indans at the Central Queensland TAFE college, which I was a student of. The first experiments started in 2006 when I was under his mentorship. It involved pressed dry materials into a PVC rigid board to leave delicate impressions that were later inks and printed onto paper.  Months were spent trialling new PVC boards to achieve desired results.  I remember Peter encouraging the class of the exciting possibilities still ahead in this medium, as well as a unique opportunity for someone to market & showcase. His enthusiasm resonated with me !
