Upcycling old etching plates

When a printmaker has finished printing an “Edition” it is traditional to destroy the artwork on the copper plate by scratching a great big cross on its surface. Another way to destroy the plate is to cut it into lots of wee pear shapes. You can then tap each of these into a handmade wooden mould, (gently to preserve the wee bit of the artwork left on the plate). After that you could drill a little hole in the top of the wee bit of copper and attach it to a super posh handmade lure with semi-precious stones and silver plate finishings to be sure to catch the most discerning trout, pike or salmon.
