An exhibition at Paisley Museum shows the intricate art of creating pictures from etching.


Etching as a printing method is thought to go as far back as the 15th century and the exhibition features artwork creating by several different forms of the process.


A selection of Royal Scottish Academy of Art and Architecture prints created by etching is now on show at Paisley Museum in a free exhibition, which goes on until June 24.


The exhibition, Ages of Wonder – Art of Etching, includes prints from artists like Alexander Runciman and David Wilkie to Elizabeth Blackadder and Will Maclean.


Visitors can see the best Scottish printmaking of the last two centuries from the RSA’s Recognised Collection of National Significance along with new prints created by contemporary artists.


Joyce McKellar, chief executive of Renfrewshire Leisure said: “The prints created from etching that are on display at Paisley Museum are absolutely stunning. You can’t help but admire the skill and expertise of the artists and the exhibition is well worth seeing.
