An etching is created by applying a layer of wax to a plate of copper, the wax is drawn into using an etching needle.  The drawing is the etched into the metal in a solution of ferric chloride. Tone is added to the plate by burning on a layer of aquatint resin, and ferric chloride is then painted onto the plate to give soft variations of tone.  Each colour is achieved by using separate plates.

A hand operated printing press is then used to transfer the line and tone onto hand made cotton paper.
