It is an exciting process that gives results quite unlike any other and Katharine has become a master in achieving some wonderful results with this technique over the years.

The etched linoleum technique allows intaglio mark making and tone on linoleum plates. Areas of the linoleum are etched with strong alkaline solution and the plate can then be printed as an intaglio plate. In some instances plates are made with a combination of etching and traditional mark making with knives and lino cutting tools.
More information about Katharine Nix and linoleum etching can be found on the Press Gang blog site. https://pressgangblog.wordpress.com/2016/03/16/lino-etching-at-winged-dog-studio/
