Scallop shells have been used so much in art and design they really are very pleasing.  They are particularly tied to the Island of Anglesey as they have their own biscuit here.  The Aberffraw biscuit is made by pressing biscuit dough into the shell to give it a distinctive shell shape. 

Printing requires pushing the paper into the groves and it's difficult to achieve a great print.  This is on Chinese paper measuring 34x69.5cm and has been mounted using the authentic Japanese wet mounting technique which uses a simple flour and water paste and requires a period of around 24 hours to dry and stretch. 

After stretching it for the first time, I've then painted this print using Chinese watercolours.  It was then wet mounted a second time. 

The print is supplied unframed and without mount boards.  It will be wrapped in acid free tissue paper and sent in a poster tube ready for framing and mounting.  It also comes with a certificate of authenticity. 

Shipping to the UK is free and is calculated at checkout for all other territories.  Please feel free to message me directly if you'd like to get a quote for a framed print.
