MO WAX VINYL ETCHING

Very rare indeed! This is the last one I have. I produced these circular prints for the 21st Year Anniversary of Mo Wax. The edition looked quite different to these artists proofs. The process was very complex first I had a Bakelite 12" disc routed with the Mo Wax logo. The record was then inked and put through an etching press. The final edition was produced rolling the ink onto the disc. However I produced a dozen or so firstly pushing ink into the grooves and then wiping and cleaning similar to an etching or Aquatint. As a result each print was totally unique and as tie went on the Bakerlite began to crack at the edges. This print is a true original.
