Printmaking is my big passion, especially drypoint.
I love the idea of reproducing the same image by hand so the autenticity is kept too. And I love the surprise component of the process.
I normally use plates of different materials: alluminium, wood, rubber to etch my drawing, then I colour it with organic printing inks.
One I have my picture I add bits of collage or gold leaf.
Other times I just love the purity of the line and leave the picture as it comes out of the press.
Also, I find interesting experimenting different kinds of paper: handmade, high quality italian Fabriano, rice paper.
Every changed ingredient, gives a different, surprising result.
