DESCRIPTION: This jigsaw puzzle of a country house
reflects the process of etching. Etchings are created by painting a copper
or zinc plate with acid resistant asphaltum, then etching the chosen
design, in a reversed mirror-image, through the hardened coating with a
sharp stylus. The plate is then immersed in a bath of appropriate acid
which eats into the exposed metal creating tiny groves. The coating is
removed, the plate is inked and cleaned, and the image printed onto damp
paper using an etching press. Each individual print is then tinted by
hand, using watercolors, giving them a distinctive and colorful flair.
