Creating marks in a plate; ink pushed into the marks, raised areas wiped clean of ink, wet paper laid on top of plate and rolled through etching press.


A metal plate is coated with a ground, allowed to dry, and then an image is meticulously scratched into the coating to reveal the metal underneath; when exposed to an acid solution, the image is etched onto the plate.


Using a burin tool to meticulously carve smooth, clean lines into a metal plate, resulting in sharp and highly precise imagery.


Achieves broad areas of shading by applying acid-resistant particles to certain areas of the plate, followed by etching those areas using an acid solution.


The process of carving away the negative areas from a matrix, applying ink onto the raised portions, placing dry paper on top, and then applying pressure, either manually or with a press, to transfer the image onto the paper.


The natural grain of the wood block plays a crucial role as it adds texture and nuance to the final printed image.


Utilizes a linoleum block, known for its longer-lasting properties and environmentally friendly nature.


Involves creating an image on a flat surface or plane to produce prints.


A method that entails crafting an image on limestone using grease or oil, etching the stone with nitric acid to create ink-adhesive areas, and then using a wet sponge to selectively remove ink from unintended areas.


Bridges the gap between planographic and drawing techniques, involving the application of inks to a plexiglass plate using various mark-making tools, solvents for textures, and stencils for creating more defined forms.
