Etchings by Karen Kemp

Etching is the process of using strong acid to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in the metal. Chin colle is the appplication and impression of another paper during the printing process, and is similar to collage. Often, Chin colle and etching are incorporated together.


Most of the etchings is about 4" x 4" framed to 11" x 11".
