About this project

BUILDING an ETCHING PRESS!

This project is to raise the funds necessary to build an etching press.  The funds will be used for plans, parts, materials, machine shop fees and accessories necessary to bring my press to life. To help me raise the money, I am releasing a small number of selected prints from my own private collection, done throughout the past 30 years as a printmaker.  These are being offered one time on this KICKSTARTER project at up to 80% off the normal retail price!

YouTube video of the ACTUAL prints be offered: http://youtu.be/Aco60Dcu6jM

Again, thank you for taking the time to look at my KICKSTARTER Project. If you like what you see, help me build my press by purchasing a print or two, and please, PLEASE, tell your friends!

THANKS!
