This hand pulled etching used the Studio techniques of intaglio, Chine colle, and aquatint. It is based on one of the artist’s many photos taken by the artist in Philadelphia’s Victorian era cemetery, Laurel Hill. The zinc plate underwent three workings and subsequent baths in Nitric acid. The plate size is five inches high by seven inches wide or 12,700cm by 17.180cm. Media consists of French etching ink, a blend of two colors, and oil-based on RivesBFK white paper with a mulberry bark paper overlay. Four editions of five etchings per edition exist, and this print is from the THIRD edition. Notes on Chine Colle Process, which translates from the French as Chinese pasting, is one in which colored and treated hand-dyed papers are attached to the etching plate before the printing press rolls. Di Falco mixes Methyl cellulose powder with spring water and then paints the resulting clear viscous substance to hand-dyed mulberry-bark paper from Thailand, Brand is Unryu. In Japan, Unryu translates as CLOUD DRAGON paper because it has long swirling threads of kozo fibers integrated in it, thereby giving the texture and visual effect of clouds. Kozo fibers come the branches of the kozo bush, specifically the innermost of three layers of bark, which must be removed, cooked, and beaten before the sheets are formed. Kozo is harvested annually. The treated Thai paper is then allowed to dry overnight and then cut to fit the plate areas where color is desired in the print. These stenciled mulberry-bark papers are first dampened or misted with water and placed upon the already inked and wiped etching plate. THE PRICE INCLUDES A FRAME and MAT. THIS ETCHING SHIPPED IN A PROFESSIONAL CARDBOARD BOX PACKED WITH BUBBLE WRAP. PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR ART ARRIVES WIRED AND HEADY TO HANG. A WALL HOOK AND NAIL ARE ALSO INCLUDED.
