Etching


The plate is covered in an acid-resistant layer of wax called an etching ground. The image is then drawn into this surface with an etching needle. The plate is immersed in an acid bath until the acid has bitten into the drawn lines. The ground is removed and the plate is inked and printed as with an engraving.
