Notes from DaVic Gallery:   ‘Happy Warriors I and II’ are sold as set only with matching print number # 6 / 35 both.

Happy Warriors came about as a result of her decorating a combat helmet to use in the Patriot Love fundraiser for injured Canadian troops and their families. Her delightful and colourful images of warriors lent themselves ideally to a horizontal print format. New Leaf etched the plates using a technique called spit bite, in which acid is mixed with gum Arabic and applied directly onto the plate to achieve a more spontaneous result.

The prints were then printed in color using the French technique à la poupée, in which colored ink is applied directly to a plate’s surface and worked into the appropriate area of the design using cotton daubs called dollies, or in French, poupées.
