I covered the plate with white wax, then placed the drawing, done with a 6B pencil on tracing paper, face down on the plate. I rolled it through the etching press and the graphite transfered in reverse onto the plate.

I then incised the major outlines of the image with a drypoint needle.

and after that I removed the wax with paint thinner.

Now I am ready to engrave with the burin. Photos will follow as I progress.
