Specialty : L’Estampe Gallery is also and above all a publishing house and has been working for more than 15 years with international artists and owns the only Aqua-engraving workshop in France.
This technique is characterized by the simultaneous creation of both paper and engraving. The artist engraves and sculpts his/her motif in bas-relief in a wax plate. The present process relates to methods of making soft mold from a base. The paper pulp is prepared and laid over a support of the press. The mold is colored directly and placed on the paper pulp, the whole part goes to press. Then follows a very long drying step and each piece is hand-retouched to refine details.
