An exhibition in which through materials obtained from nature itself the visitor is invited to stop at the Egea engravings and observe its technical details, which are quite an art lesson.
Some of the techniques he uses are acid bites on copper or zinc plates, caressed with a feather to remove impurities, black "Charbonell" varnish, where he exquisitely draws his motifs, intricate inking, with last touches with the side of his own hand, millimeter prints and patient drying and ironing of his sheets on heavyweight paper,to get perfect runs, signed and numbered with your own style.
