Catalog on categories: «Etching»

Etching (from fr. Eau-forte - «strong water») - engraving on metal, invented in the XVI century. The image is first scratched on a metal plate with a needle. Acids are applied to the recesses of individual fragments, and then filled with paint and an imprint is made using a special machine on wet paper. The varieties of etching include the dotted line, dry needle, mezzotinto, aquantine, reserve and soft varnish. They differ in the way of drawing on metal.
