The prints are done by hand, by burnishing zinc or copper plate aquatints. In this process the plate is covered with a hard ground, Michael makes a scratched line drawing on a wax coated plate, and the lines are etched as a guide. Next the plate is cleaned and etched with several layers of spray aquatint until it prints black. The artist then burnishes the tones and whites into the plate. prints are then pulled from the plate.
