Etching and Scratching

When I am not sure how to proceed with a print, I sometimes take a sideways step and do an etching. 

You might remember that I recently started on a butterfly print. I went back to this today, but couldn’t decide on which parts to cut out next. So I started on an etching to clarify my mind. 

This is the etching plate.  I use plastic sheets and a hand etching tool to scrape away the image.
