etching process

here is the first proof that was printed from my copper etching. It was wipped in a pretty unclean manner but it was to see the state of the plate. and also it gave some indication of what kind of white I can have.

mezzotint is a rather long process and only the preparation of the copper plate (the matrix) can take several hours. Actually I began to rock the white part of the plate and added some more details in there.
