Polymer Gravure Limited Edition Prints

Polymer Photogravure is a printmaking technique that falls under the Intaglio process of printmaking. This creates an image lower than the surface level of the plate.

In this case, an image is exposed onto a Polymer plate, inked and printed. The subtle grooves in the plate hold the ink, which is the essence of intaglio. This works in the opposite way to relief printing (e.g., Lino cutting, woodcutting, and various types of engraving).

The process takes approximately one hour to apply the ink to the plate and make each print. The finished print is then stretched and allowed to dry over a 4 day period.

Each Polymer plate is only able to produce 25 prints. Therefore, each image is a limited edition of 25.
