Our workshop

我们的工作作坊里生产的是限量的版画原作。
古老的金属石刻版画技法,据知源自于十六世纪的佛罗伦萨


etching 印版画第一步骤乃将铜板涂上蜡质的防腐蚀层,
然后以不同的雕刻工具及手法,刻制图案。
画好的铜板浸泡于一种酸液中(以前在意大利称作“强水”)以便沿着刻痕侵蚀铜板。

Printing印制之前,将蜡质用溶剂洗干净,才可上墨。
并用一条湿润的纸覆盖然后以压印机辗过。
而成为一张作品,等作品风干之后,可上颜色。
由于压印机压力很大,多次辗过后,刻痕会逐渐变浅

water-colouring为保证品质,每片铜板压制的数量有限。
后续的上色又纯属手工。
这使得同一系列成品(附予编号)每张都是独特的。

20 Great Escapes

D MAGAZINE - Dallas, USA

...but perhaps the most special boutique, one that we stumbled upon quite by accident-on the way to dinner at Garga, actually-is Il Tamarino Stampe d'Arte (Via del Moro 46/r, +39 055 282457; www.iltamarino.com ), which combines Florence's two finest assets: art and shopping. Here they make fine limited-edition etchings using a process believed to have originated in Florence in the early 16th century, in which a copper plate is covered in a wax varnish and etched, then immersed in a mordant that corrodes the copper where the wax has been removed. The plate is then inked, covered with a dampened piece of paper, and passed through the printing press. The dry print is then watercolored, producing a unique image. You'll be hard-pressed (sorry) to choose between from pristine Florentine cityscapes, Tuscan landscapes, and darling botanicals and butterflies-each a special keepsake from this magical and majestic place.
