Drypoint Engraving is an intaglio printing process where the ink is contained in the lines made in the surface of the plate and then passed through an etching press. Metal and plastic plates can be used.
The engraving needle scratches out the design onto the plate, (etching involves cutting down the lines with acid). Drypoint engraving is not as durable as an etching plate as the design is worn down under the pressure of the press, therefore editions are small, up to 20 prints are made.
Currently I am exploring the possibilities of black and white.
