"What's the Rush?" etching by David Hunter

Do you know what the art of etching really is? Meet David Hunter. He’s a master in the art of printmaking… or the process of creating etchings.

“I start with a clean smooth polished zinc plate. I paint an acid resistant coating on the plate. Then I take a sharp needle and do a free hand drawing through the coating so each line exposes the plate,” explains Hunter. “When the drawing is finished, I put the plate in nitric acid… this etches each line into the plate.”

When Hunter is satisfied that the zinc plate is etched, he takes it out of the acid and removes the coating.

“The plate is not the artwork,” says Hunter. “The print from the plate is the final definitive artwork.”

Watch online! From Plate to Press to Paint

David Hunter has been demonstrating etchings at Seaside Art Gallery for more than 30 years.

New! this year… the demonstration is online! You'll see original art created right before your eyes! From plate… to press… to acrylic paint wash.

On September 4, 5 and 6… a new video will be released for each day. Hunter will demonstrate never-seen-before steps in his etching process.

Now you can watch how he hand-etches the zinc plate with a needle. Submerge the plate into acid. And, see the lines recess into the plate as the nitric acid bites away at the metal.

He uses the plate to impress an inked image into original etchings. And when it’s dry, Hunter then paints the etching with an acrylic wash.

“What’s the Rush?”

Every year, Hunter creates a new etching only for this event.

This year’s creation is entitled “What’s the Rush?”

Only 85 of these gems are issued. They are released and available exclusively at Seaside Art Gallery (while supplies last.)

In celebration of this first-time online demonstration, you can purchase the etching online now! It’s available unframed ($75) and framed ($195).
