What is a replica?

Replica is the term used to describe a copy of an artwork. This type of copy is so well done that it is almost impossible to distinguish it from the original art piece. Artists often make replicas of their own work.

Metalcut

Metalcut was a technique for relief printing. It existed primarily from about 1450 to 1540 in Europe. The technique used thin metal plates. One method cut or hammered away parts which should not print. A second used engraving to show white lines on black background.

Porcelain

Porcelain is a hard material made of clay which is primarily composed of the mineral kaolinite. It is used to make art objects and a wide range of everyday household wares such as dishes and bowls. Porcelain items are popular for painting with special glazes.

Embossing

Embossing is the technique of decorating or creating images with a raised design. Artists often change the shape of paper to create raised edges with many levels. The process is worked from the reverse side of the paper, using a template and sanded dowel.
