Spring Wildflowers

Loos, Ryland
April 2006
New York State Conservationist;Apr2006, Vol. 60 Issue 5, p2
The article focuses on the art of etching being done by artist Ryland Loos. The process involves coating a copper, iron or a zinc plate, with a wax coating called a ground. The artist uses a pointed tool to scratch the drawing through the ground to expose the metal. The image is made by inking the finished plate and then hand-cranking a sheet of soaked and blotted paper through a press.
