'Laughing Sailor' original Hand Pulled Print by Debbie Todd

An original hand pulled print using an etching press.

Dry point etching is a method by which I etch the image onto an acrylic plate using a very sharp tool which looks like a pen, and the etched incisions hold the ink to create an image.

When ready for printing, I ink the plate, wiping to remove any excess ink and I put the plate through a hand pulled etching press with moistened etching paper laid over the top.

This is where the term 'Hand Pulled Print' comes from, as each individual print is inked and pulled by hand through the printing press making each print an original fine art print. No computer or digital printer can reproduce the hand pulled effect!
As the plate is handled and printed it deteriorates, so there are a limited amount of prints that can be pulled.
Each print is numbered as to it's place in the number of prints pulled, and each print will be signed by myself, and showing the number of the print and how many were in the edition. Each print is therefore an original piece of art, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.

Hand coloured.

This print comes UN-MOUNTED and UN-FRAMED
The image is 8cm x 7.5cm.

It is wrapped in a cellophane sleeve.
It is posted using Royal Mail.

This original hand pulled print is inspired by my love of fairgrounds and carnivals.
There is something a little un-settling about the hand carved, painted face.
Place an old Penny in the slot and he will begin to sway and laugh and laugh...
This hand pulled print is entitled 'Laughing Sailor'.
