Etching is the process of using strong acid or mordant to cut into the unprotected parts of a metal surface to create a design in intaglio in the metal.
Aquatint is an intaglio printmaking technique. Like etching, aquatint uses the application of acid to make the marks in the metal plate. Where the engraving technique uses a needle to make lines that print, aquatint uses powdered rosin to create a tonal effect.
The etchings were printed in my studio. Different etching techniques were employed. The gravure ink was wiped out on the zinc plates by hand and so the individual etchings vary. Please also visit my German homepage about Radierungen
