Three colors of Mulberry bark paper from Thailand, which the artist had treated with methyl cellulose, was utilized in his Chine colle process. The zinc etching plate measured six inches high by eight inches, and the frame size is eleven inches high by fourteen inches wide. The STUDIO TECHNIQUES employed by DiFalco included Aquatint, Drypoint, Chine colle, and Intaglio. The etching was hand printed by Di Falco in FOUR EDITIONS, each limited to only FIVE PRINTS. This particular etching is from the THIRD EDITION. THE PRICE INCLUDES A FRAME and MAT. THIS ETCHING SHIPPED IN A PROFESSIONAL CARDBOARD BOX PACKED WITH BUBBLE WRAP.
