Etching is an artistic discipline by which images can be created on metal using a variety of different processes, including the use of acid, then printed onto specialized printmaking papers. Multiple prints can be made from a plate to form a limited edition of work, each one of which is an ‘original.
Screenprinting is a method of making an image using stencils. These are attached to a mesh that is stretched over a frame. Using a squeegee, ink is pulled through the stencil to create an image. Screenprinting as a process is intrinsic to graphics, advertising and packaging.
