etchpress1Equipment For Etching

At FDPW, we have a Rochat etching press suitable for up to 65 x 110 paper size as well as two small mobile etching presses. There is a good selection of etching inks. We use ferric chloride and Edinburgh Etch. Our workshop now uses the ‘salt etch’ process which is made using copper sulphate and salt.

Other equipment includes a hot plate, metal cutter; mount cutter, A0 light box, print racks, computer and scanner. Copper and zinc are available for purchase and we also stock a range of papers at reasonable prices. 
You can use this equipment for the creation of prints made using any of the etching techniques including aquatint, drypoint and collagraph.
