Vic Daviet – Etching on copper
Victor Daviet, backside 180 indy while Thomas Delfino films with a super 8 camera.
Etching on copper plate. The original picture is re-drawn from hand by little strokes on varnished copper with a iron pin, then dipped in strong acid to etch the copper. It is then inked and cleaned, the ink remaining only in the etches, it is transfered on the paper with a press. Technique called “Pointe sèche” and “Eau forte”.
Original etching print. Canson Velin BFK Rives paper 280g, 56 x 76 cm. Size of copper plate : 46 x 64 cm.
I made only a handful of prints, Victor and I own one, a couple other are avaible for sale. Every print is slightly different due to inking and pressing. Hand signed and numbered.
