Limited Editions
[ Top ]

Megan Roodenrys also produces limited edition dry points.
Dry point print making is easily recognisable with slightly fuzzy lines which it leaves on the paper.
The process involves firstly scratching a design onto a polished copper plate using a sharp hard needle.
This throws up a rough ridge of metal (the burr) along the incised line which is the source of many of the dry points' advantages as well as its problems. The burr holds the ink as well as the line of the groove itself. This makes it suitable for creating rich velvety areas of tone. When the print is transferred to paper, the typical fuzzy dry point lines are left behind. Unfortunately the burr is very fragile, wearing down quickly in the printing press. This is why only few copies are possible and explains the limited editions of Megan's work in this area, often less than 15.
As result, the prints hold their value and are an investment in themselves.
