Equipment and Etching Printing In the studio there are usually around 4 Gunning Etching Presses, a large Gunning Hotplate, extractor fan units, one of our large aquatint boxes and a dark room with a UV Light box. We have a brilliant wash down sink and glass work surfaces so you can ink up anywhere. We have a plasma cutter and metal polishers as well as brilliant printers and Mac computers with the use of photoshop and other software.
The studio space has been designed to house 4 printmakers giving them more than enough space to make and print plates the size of 20” x 30”. The hot plate, acid and water baths have been made to take plates of this size and the largest printing press in the studio is our No 4 Etching printing press with a bed size of 35” x 60” making it easy to print any size.
