Fairy Wine

Artwork details: two-plate etching, edition of 16 prints, 4 x 4.2 inches (10 x 11 cm), 2010.

This little fairy was a lot more trouble than she looks! This is an etching done with two plates - one printing in blue and the other in orange, and I cannot begin to describe how much more of a headache this is than printing off just the one plate! My first (and to date, only), two-plate etching, nonetheless I do rather enjoy the challenge, and the effect, too, so no doubt there will be more, one day...

I have pasted two prints of this etching below - there was an enormous variation depending on the amount of ink on each of the two plates, but though the prints below are very different, I like them both and couldn't really say which I prefer, so I am content to claim it was meant to be that way!
