COLIN BYGRAVE: A GUIDE TO ETCHING
This series of films is about a particular technique within the whole subject of etching. The technique is called Aquatint, and my film aims both to help artists who want to go further into the practice of etching and to explain something of the process to interested art lovers and  collectors. My particular approach may differ in detail from that of  others - we all have our own idiosyncrasies and routines – but the broad outlines of the technique have remained the same since its  beginnings in the late eighteenth century.
