What is a dry-point etching?
Jet James’ paper dry point etching technique uses a paste board template that is etched into using needle points and Stanley knifes. A paste board has a layer of plastic on top, with a porous, cardboard backing. The plastic coating is carved into to expose the cardboard underneath which acts as a template to rub ink into. The ink is then polished back, removing the ink from the smoothness of the plastic but remaining within the absorbency of the cardboard. A piece of high quality, 250gsm Fabiano paper is placed on top of the template and run through a printing press to press the template into the paper. The artwork is then revealed onto the paper.
